Peter Gammons Hospitalized

Peter Gammons was hospitalized after suffering a brain aneurysm today. He underwent surgery at a Boston area hospital and is expectded to remain in intensive care for 10-12 days. The complete story can be found in the Boston Globe.

As a lifetime Massachusetts resident, I have followed Peter Gammons for most of my life as a baseball fan. A lot of fans just know him as an analyst on ESPN but he had a lifetime as a journalist before he started working on television. He was the Red Sox beat writer back into the 7os and was the originator of the first baseball notes column in 1980 while still writing for The Boston Globe. He is my favorite sports writer and analyst of all time and I learned a lot about baseball from him when I was younger. So I'm hoping for a quick and complete recovery.

  1. I like Gammons and his work, and I wish him well.

    Now when I say I like his work, I'm referring to his baseball coverage. I'm not sure how he rates as a musician/singer.

  2. I haven't heard Gammons do any music lately but he's been singing and playing the guitar since he was a kid.
    That CD might be better than people think.
