WALLINGFORD — Almost a year ago to the day, Wallingford teenager Alena D'Antonio had surgery to remove a tumor from the right side of her brain.

It was love from family and friends, along with therapy at Gaylord Special Care, that helped her heal and brought her through the tough times.

So did softball.

Two months after her June 2021 surgery, D’Antonio was back on the field, playing slow-pitch softball in the Wallingford Girls Softball League on a team coached by her dad, Dom.
