Former Sox Brodcaster Don Orsillo Loses Dad To Cancer

Former Red Sox play-by-play man Don Orsillo tweeted today that he lost his father to a battle with pancreatic cancer. In the tweet, Orsillo states that his Dad was diagnosed in August of 2015. Orsillo was in the Red Sox broadcast booth between 2001-2015. His dismissal before last season was met with a significant amount of displeasure from the Red Sox fan base. To this day, there are many in The Nation who feel he should still be the play-by-play voice of the Red Sox—with no disrespect to the current holder of the job, Dave O'Brien. Don is currently play-by-play man for San Diego Padres, Fox Sports, and works the MLB post-season for TBS. You can express your condolences to Don via his Twitter account: @DonOrsillo.
