Remy back for first time in three months
BOSTON -- Jerry Remy is working in the Boston Red Sox broadcast booth for the first time in more than three months.
The color analyst on the team's telecasts returned Friday night for Boston's game against the Yankees. He took a leave of absence in early May after developing an infection and pneumonia following surgery for lung cancer late last year.
On Aug. 12, the popular Remy returned to Fenway Park for a game for the first time and received a standing ovation while visiting the New England Sports Network booth. He told reporters that night that he was "back" physically but was being treated for depression that delayed his return to his job.
Remy, 56, is expected to broadcast games part time with play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo for now.
