Jerry Remy to Return on Friday Against Yankees

After a long battle with depression after lung cancer surgery, Jerry Remy is headed back to the broadcasting booth. Remy made a brief appearance during the second inning of a Red Sox game last week. Remy will, at first, join the NESN team on a part-time basis and slowly move into the swing of this. With his first “public” appearance out of the way, Remy spoke to NESN’s Tom Caron:

“Now I’m glad I did it [return to Fenway last week] because it really kind of gets that out of the way and when I do come back on Friday to do a game, it’s just a normal day,” Remy said. “The Yankees being in town, obviously that’s a little bit different, but to get all this personal stuff out of the way I think was a great thing for me last week. But it is a little bit uncomfortable. You know I’m not a player, I’m just a broadcaster. To have that much attention put on you it means people care about you.”

“I’m anxious right now just thinking about it. But I’m sure once you get back into the swing of things after an inning or so it will be just like old times, and we’ll have hopefully a good game and a little bit of fun.”

Just a broadcaster, Remy? I guess our hundreds of comments and outpouring of support from the fans might say just a little bit to the contrary. We’re glad to have you back in the booth Remdawg! Hopefully you can give the Red Sox that desperately needed boost to beat the Yankees this weekend!
