For the sixth time in the past decade, Boston Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy has been diagnosed with cancer.

In a statement Tuesday, NESN said Remy’s focus “is on his medical treatment.”

“The thoughts and prayers of all of us at NESN and the Red Sox are with Jerry and his family during this difficult time,” the station wrote.

Remy, 65, has been working as a color analyst for NESN since 1988. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and has since taken several leaves of absence to undergo treatment.

The Fall River native was a second baseman for the Red Sox from 1978 to 1984 and is a member of the team’s Hall of Fame.
