Larry DeFillipo

Larry DeFillipo is a retired aerospace engineer who first joined SABR in the early 2000s then rejoined in 2021. He worked on numerous spacecraft and launch vehicle projects in his 40-year career, including the Cassini mission to Saturn, the New Horizons mission to Pluto, and the Antares launch vehicle which delivers cargo to the International Space Station. Larry earned a Bachelor of Engineering degree from SUNY Stony Brook (now Stony Brook University), where he reached the pinnacle of his baseball career as a walk-on left-handed relief pitcher for the university’s then-Division III team. Before college, he continually confused his parents over whether he was left-handed or right-handed; switching from a right to left-handed thrower in Little League and from a right to left-handed bowler before joining the high school bowling team. Larry is a lifelong Mets fan, courtesy of his maternal grandfather Bill who rooted for the Brooklyn Superbas/Robins/Dodgers until they fled westward. Larry wrote for The National Pastime in 2004 and recently began writing stories for the Games and Biography Projects. Larry loves traveling, hiking and going to baseball games with his wife, Kelly, a lifelong Braves fan.
