New archery pavilion is dedicated to Westborough’s Montalbano

Westborough – The late Greg Montalbano was best known for his skills on the baseball diamond, pitching for St. John’s High School, Northeastern University, the Red Sox organization and the Worcester Tornadoes. But Montalbano was also an avid outdoorsman, who loved to backpack, camp, fly fish, and canoe down rivers in Maine. Many of those hobbies were ones he participated in as a member of Troop 100 in Westborough, where he also earned his Eagle Scout rank. As someone who was stricken with cancer himself, he volunteered numerous times to play in and speak at fundraisers for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute’s Jimmy Fund. Sadly, Montalbano lost his own battle with cancer in 2009, just days before he was to turn 32.
