On this week's 'Valley Sports Rewind,' host Mike Cannici welcomes basketball coach Vince Della Volpe of Ansonia.

Della Volpe now coaches girls' basketball in Ansonia, and his family is full of youth coaches, including his father, former Ansonia Mayor James Della Volpe.

Della Volpe played basketball at Ansonia High School. He played for three years on the football team as well for three of his four years in high school.

He also played a ton of golf growing up in Ansonia because his dad and the late Jack Hunt ran a driving range at one point (where the BJ's Wholesale now stands on Division Street in Derby).

On the latest episode of 'Valley Sports Rewind,' host Mike Cannici sits down to talk old-school softball with Jack Walsh and Dave Barone. 

Both men played for the Kasden softball team, a venerable team that powered through through leagues and tournaments from 1969 until 1984, winning more than 1,000 games.

Jack and his brother, Jim, were key members and organizers of the team.

Walsh, of Derby, retired a year ago from The Valley United Way.

Barone is from Ansonia originally, and owns the sports bar in Seymour.
