Bill Belichick Shares Heartfelt Goodbye to Jerry Remy
The Boston Red Sox and Boston sports family tragically lost one of their most beloved figures over the weekend when Jerry Remy passed away following a prolonged battle with cancer.
The former Red Sox broadcaster and All-Star second baseman died at age 68. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick understands the magnitude of this loss and took time to reflect on Monday morning.
During his weekly Monday postgame appearance on Boston's WEEI sports radio, Belichick concluded the radio spot with a heartfelt goodbye to Remy.
“Before we sign off, I just wanted to say to all of our fans out there, who are mostly Red Sox fans, how much we all are saddened by Jerry’s passing and how much he meant to all of us, the connection that he was to the Red Sox, his voice in the game and (how great) it was for the fans. He meant so much to Boston sports as a player and as an announcer, and his commentary of the game and insight into the game. We’ll all miss him. I know our fans are Jerry Remy and Red Sox fans, too, so our sympathy goes out to the Remy family. I just want to express my and all of our appreciation for all that he did to make Boston sports enjoyable and exciting for all of us. We’ll certainly miss him.”- Bill Belichick
