Report: Jerry Remy, beloved Red Sox broadcaster, loses battle with cancer originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Red Sox Nation lost one of its most beloved members Saturday.

Former Red Sox second baseman and longtime broadcaster Jerry Remy died of cancer Saturday night at age 68, WCVB reported Sunday morning.

Remy had battled lung cancer for several years and was diagnosed with cancer seven times after his initial diagnosis in 2008.

He stepped away from his color analyst role at NESN in August to undergo treatment, but returned to Fenway Park on Oct. 5 to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Red Sox’s American League Wild Card Game against the New York Yankees.

A native of Somerset, Mass., Remy enjoyed a 10-year major league career that included seven seasons with Boston after a three-year stint with the California Angels.

He joined NESN as a color analyst in 1988 and spent the next 33 years with the network, endearing himself to generations of Red Sox fans.

Remy was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2006 and the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2017.
