Former Red Sox second basemen Jerry Remy was named to the Boston Red Sox All-Fenway team during a ceremony that took place Wednesday night.
Remy played seven seasons for the Red Sox and was a career .286 hitter. He made his lone All-Star appearance in the 1978 season. The second baseman wasn't a superstar, but he did the little things right and made his team better with his bunting ability and career .981 fielding percentage.
The native of Massachusetts got to return to his home state when the Red Sox traded for him in December of 1977, after he had played three seasons with the California Angels. Since the day he became a member of the Red Sox, Remy has been a constant figure among the organization. He has been a member of Boston's broadcast team since 1988, and in 2007 he was elected president of Red Sox Nation.
Remy spoke about how meaningful it was to be included on the All-Fenway team before Wednesday's game. To hear what he had to say, check out the video above.
