NESN and Remy released a joint statement Saturday afternoon, as well.
“Last night, during the third inning of the Red Sox game against the Toronto Blue Jays, NESN broadcaster Jerry Remy experienced shortness of breath and stepped away from the broadcast as a precaution. He’s resting comfortably at Mass General, and is feeling better. He is grateful for all of the support and well wishes. There is no update or timeline for when he’ll return to the broadcast booth.”
All of Red Sox Nation certainly is hoping for a speedy recovery.
