66 Remdawg
Jerry Remy is the New England Sports Network (NESN) color commentator, and he is more popular now than he ever was as a player for the Red Sox. He played for Boston for seven years, from 1978 to 1984, after coming in on a trade for Don Aase in the winter of 1977.

Remy owns a popular hot dog stand located right outside of Gate C called Remdawgs; it features large, plump, juicy hot dogs with all the fixings that are often enjoyed by Sox fans right before they go into the game. The neat thing about Remdawgs is that it’s located right next to the portable NESN studio where The Boston Globe Red Sox pregame show is recorded. Remy, as well as various guests, tape segments for the show in front of hundreds of Red Sox fans who gather around the stage and the hot dog stand to watch the show before entering the ballpark.

Remy is an insightful and rather funny color analyst who partakes in sometimes silly ribbing and joking with play-by-play partner Don Orsillo during Red Sox broadcasts. Remy analyzes the upcoming game or reviews the game played the previous evening with host Tom Caron and a rotating cohost — either former Red Sox pitcher Dennis Eckersley, Red Sox great Jim Rice, or former Pawtucket and Oakland A’s manager Ken Macha.

Remy has become one of the best color analysts in the country, usually drawing rave reviews from both local and national TV critics. With his keen insights into the game and in-depth knowledge of Red Sox personnel, he has a knack for being able to anticipate what could happen next with the team.

Remy was raised in Somerset, Massachusetts, and rose quickly through the Angels minor league system. He won the batting title with El Paso in the Texas League, hitting .338, and then went to Triple A Salt Lake City. Remy took the second-base job there from another future Red Sox second baseman, Denny Doyle, in 1975. The funny story here is that he also replaced Doyle when the Red Sox traded for him in 1978.

Remy was a terrific defensive second baseman who had speed and played the game with reckless abandon. Knee injuries slowed him down in 1984, and he retired when it became evident to him that he could no longer play at the level to which he was accustomed.
