The 64-year old Remy was treated for his fourth bout with lung cancer this past offseason after being first diagnosed in 2008. Along with being a former Red Sox and NESN analyst, Remy is a local kid growing up in Somerset, Massachusetts and playing ball at Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island.
He played for the Red Sox from 1978-84 and is in the midst of his 30th season in the booth as NESN’s color analyst.
Poor guy cannot catch a break, hopefully he can get through this next treatment and move on his way to recovery, were all rooting for you Jerry!
