A salute to Jerry Remy is going to be going on at Fenway before the Red Sox-DBacks game tonight and you're invited! Well, only if you have MLB's Extra Innings package that is. Rem Dawg is being honored for 20 years of calling games for his beloved Sawx and tonight he gets high schoolers singing to him and a pregame tribute....
Tonight, distributors are making NESN's Red Sox pregame show available to MLB Extra Innings subscribers beginning at 6 p.m. EST. This is a special event so that Red Sox fans may enjoy coverage of Jerry Remy Day at Fenway Park and a salute to Jerry for his 20 years of broadcasting Red Sox games.There had been rumors of a recent rift between Remy and his booth mate Don Orsillo, but according to Baseball Musings it's Heidi Watney whom he can't stand. Good times! Congrats Remy, and while your antics annoy some, they'll never get old around these parts. We better see some of that air guitar tonight!
Tuesday is Jerry Remy Day at Fenway Park, and the Red Sox will include youngsters from the TV analyst’s hometown in the pregame ceremony. Four recent Somerset High School graduates will sing the national anthem, and other town students will present the colors.
