Gammons to Return to Work

ESPN is reporting that Peter Gammons, who suffered an aneurysm in June, is going to make an appearance on ESPN tomorrow night:

Gammons, who suffered a brain aneurysm in late June, will be on the 6 p.m. ET edition of SportsCenter and the 7 p.m. ET edition of Baseball Tonight. He will report from Fenway Park.

Gammons isn't returning to work full-time. An ESPN spokesman said that future appearances will be scheduled as Gammons is comfortable.

This is some of the best news of the year. As I said back in June, I have been a big fan of Gammons for about 30 years. With the exception of Ernie Harwell, nobody in the media has influenced my life as a baseball fan more than Gammons. I learned a lot about the game from him when he wrote for The Boston Globe back in the 70s and 80s. Baseball is not quite the same without him around.

  1. Good news, indeed. I've enjoyed his work.

    It's good that he's able to return to work, but it's better that he's got a clean bill of health.

  2. Peter Gammons wrote for the Sporting News when I was in my psycho baseball fan infancy in th early 80's. Ever since, he's become synonymous with the game for me. And I've always appreciated that he gets Detroit as a baseball town, and had a great love for Tiger Stadium like many here.
