Jerry Remy has passed away

Reblogged from WCBV:

Jerry Remy, a longtime television broadcaster for the Boston Red Sox and a former standout player for the team, has died of cancer at the age of 68.

 

Remy had stepped away from his role as the color analyst for New England Sports Network’s Red Sox broadcasts on Aug. 4 to undergo treatment for lung cancer. This was the seventh time the Massachusetts native had been diagnosed with cancer following the initial diagnosis in 2008. His most recent previous cancer diagnosis was in 2018.

On June 11, Remy said he experienced shortness of breath during the third inning of a game between the Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays at Fenway Park. He stepped away from the broadcast as a precaution and was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital. He was released from MGH on June 16 and returned to the broadcast booth on June 20.

His most recent public appearance came on Oct. 5, when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the American League Wild Card Game against the New York Yankees.
