One of Rochester’s greatest athletes and greatest gentlemen passed away on Friday.
Johnny Antonelli pitched 12 major league baseball seasons for three different franchises. He was a five time all-star and a key part of the New York Giants 1954 championship season.
His son-in-law, Monroe County Court Judge Chris Ciaccio, made the announcement of Antonelli’s passing on Facebook Friday morning. He called Antonelli, “Gracious, humble, immensely giving of his time throughout his career, Rochester’s greatest athlete of all time.”
