This homecoming, Tony Massarotti, A89, received the Tufts Athletics Distinguished Achievement Award, an award that recognizes “extraordinary contributions to sports by individuals with Tufts and/or New England identities.” He is the 29th recipient and one of many Jumbos awarded in recent years.
A double major in English and classics, Massarotti began his career covering sports for the Tufts Daily during his freshman year. After gradation, he landed a spot writing for the writing for the Boston Herald and later moved to the Boston Globe and Boston.com. Today, he is a co-host of the Felger and Massarotti afternoon drive talk show from 2–6 pm on 98.5 The Sports Hub (CBS). Tony has won the Massachusetts Sportswriter of the Year award twice, and is the author of four books. His most recent work, Knuckler: My Life with Baseball’s Most Confounding Pitch, is a memoir of Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield.
