In a long and emotional press conference with a small group of reporters, Jerry Remy announced today that he will return to the Red Sox broadcast booth in 2014. Remy said his wife and three close friends convinced him to reconsider his initial decision not to return. After the first of the year, he changed his mind and decided to re-unite with NESN's Don Orsillo. This will be Remy's 27th season as a Red Sox broadcaster—taking the last month and a half off last year after his son was arrested for the alleged murder of his girlfriend. Said Remy, "I don’t intend to be a quitter. Don’t intend to be one now. It’s what I do. It’s what I know. It’s what my comfort level is. It’s where I feel I belong and I feel I’m going to do so as long as possible. I hope in no way that my decision to come back to do games has a negative impact on the Martel family. I’m quite certain they understand I have to make a living, and unfortunately mine is in the public eye. I’m quite certain they understand that." We wish Jerry all the best and eagerly anticipate his return to the broadcast booth.
