BOSTON (AP) — Veteran Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy says he'll return this season after his leave of absence following the arrest of his son on a murder charge in the death of his girlfriend in August.
For the first time since the arrest, Remy spoke publicly, talking to reporters Monday at New England Sports Network headquarters.
Remy said he was concerned with what the public would think of him and his family and if he could joke around and be himself. He said his friends and family persuaded him to return to work.
Jared Remy was arrested Aug. 13 after he allegedly pushed Jennifer Martel into a mirror. He was released the following day and is accused of fatally stabbing Martel at their apartment.
He has pleaded not guilty.
