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.
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.
