NESN Commentator Jerry Remy Diagnosed With Cancer Again

It's the Red Sox color commentator's sixth relapse

NESN announced Tuesday that long-time color commentator Jerry Remy has been diagnosed with cancer again.

"The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time," the television network said in a statement.

NESN said Remy's focus right now is on his medical treatment.

The 65-year-old returned to the broadcast booth during spring training of this year after undergoing surgery for lung cancer last summer. This is his sixth relapse.

Remy has been with the Red Sox since 1988, providing color commentary. He played second base for the team from 1978 through 1984.
