According to multiple reports, Red Sox analyst Jerry Remy passed away Sunday. The beloved analyst was in the midst of his seventh battle with cancer. He was 68 years old.
Remy was diagnosed with lung cancer in June, which forced him to step away from NESN.
Following a 10-year playing career, including six seasons with the Red Sox, Remy stepped into the booth. His first season with NESN came in 1988.
Known for his irreverent humor, Remy became one of the most popular and iconic broadcasters in Boston sports history. The “RemDawg” was inducted into the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 2006 and Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2017.
Remy’s last pubic appearance came earlier this month, when he threw out the first pitch at Fenway Park prior to the AL Wild Card Game.
