Jerry Remy, a Boston sports guy through and through, shared heartbreaking news of his fifth diagnosis of cancer Monday afternoon.
The 64-year-old Remy has worked for the Red Sox on and off since 1978. He was a second baseman for the Sox over his 10-year MLB career, three of which he spent with the California Angels. The former All-Star has nearly 4,000 Red Sox games for NESN and was voted Massachusetts’ Favorite TV announcer in 2004, per Sports Illustrated (H/T CBS).
Remy also owns “RemDawgs” just outside Fenway Park on Yawkey Way. Remy was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2006.
Remy’s last diagnosis came in 2017, but was thought to be “under control,” per CBS.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Remy.
