Jerry Remy’s death prompts wave of tributes for beloved broadcaster originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Few broadcasters had a more natural bond with their audience than Jerry Remy and Red Sox Nation.

The former Red Sox second baseman and longtime NESN broadcaster died of cancer Saturday night at age 68. A native of Somerset, Mass., Remy played seven seasons in Boston as a scrappy infielder and spent 33 years in the broadcast booth as a beloved color analyst.

News of Remy’s passing saddened generations of players, media members and fans who knew the “RemDawg” as a Boston institution. Here are a few of the tributes for Remy that poured in Sunday, including from former Red Sox stars Wade Boggs and Fred Lynn:

Many also chose to remember the best moments of Remy’s broadcasting career, which included an epic breakdown of a fan flinging a pizza in the stands during a game:

Remy fought his battle with cancer to the very end, appearing at Fenway Park as recently as Oct. 5 to throw out the ceremonial first pitch to Dennis Eckersley ahead of Boston’s American League Wild Card Game against the New York Yankees.

These tweets are just a sampling of the Remy tributes that poured in Sunday, highlighting how important he was to the Red Sox community and entire New England region.
