Jack Sanford was born on Saturday, May 18, 1929, in Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts. Sanford was 27 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 16, 1956, with the Philadelphia Phillies.

"He (Jack Sanford) was a bulky guy, who would be a small-size right tackle on the football team. He wasn't delicate. He was out there to throw the baseball and he did it well. He wasn't afraid to brush back a hitter. He was an old-school pitcher. He wasn't a Cadillac, but he was a damn good Buick." - Bob Stevens in The San Francisco Chronicle (2000)
