A sports icon in Boston, Petrocelli defined the position of a “power-hitting” shortstop in his 13 years with the Red Sox. In 1969 he was the first shortstop to hit 40 home runs in a season, a record that stood until broken by Alex Rodriguez in 1998. Petrocelli has worked as manager, coach and TV analyst for the Pawtucket Red Sox and as a radio/television analyst for the Boston Red Sox and the Seattle Mariners as well as hosting a weekly sports talk show on Boston’s 1510AM “The Zone.” In addition to co-hosting The Great American Collectibles Show, Petrocelli co-hosts the popular Sirius MLB Radio show Remember When with Ed Randall of New York’s WFAN.
A businessman in the greater Boston area, Zappala is co-author of the award-winning books, The T206 Collection: The Players & Their Stories, The Cracker Jack Collection: Baseball’s Prized Players and the August 2016 release, The 100 Greatest Baseball Autographs. Zappala co-hosts a popular talk radio show which broadcasts in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. As co-owner of ATS Communications of MA, a multimedia and consulting company, he handles publicity and personal appearances for several authors and a variety of artists in the entertainment field. Zappala enjoys collecting vintage baseball and boxing memorabilia.
