Jerry Remy, a former Boston second baseman who was also a long-time Red Sox broadcaster.on October 30, 2021. Remy, a native of Fall River in Massachusetts, grew up near Somerset. He was a solid defensive player and a speedy steal base threat over 10 seasons with the Red Sox. . He was part of the 1978 All-Star squad in Boston's first season.
Baseball fans were most familiar with Remy's long career as a Red Sox color analyst. Red Sox fans had a good chance of Remy breaking down laughing at any given event on the field. Remy's and Orsillo’s call about the 2007 “pizza accident”, in which a fan threw some pizza at another Red Sox fan who had failed catch a fly ball, may have been the most memorable moment in Red Sox broadcasting history. Remy, better known as “RemDawg”, received induction into the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame and was elected President of Red Sox Nation.
