Peter Gammons, the award-winning baseball writer and the face of news and analysis for millions of fans through the years, underwent surgery Tuesday for an aneurysm in his brain, The Boston Globe and ESPN reported.The news was first posted at SoSH at 6:08 PM. I cannot believe NESN made no mention of this during the game?!? (Was it mentioned on WEEI?)
Gammons, 61, reportedly was stricken earlier Tuesday and was taken to a Boston-area hospital. He is expected to be in intensive care for the next 10 to 12 days.
