Wind blows over monitor, hits Red Sox announcer Jerry Remy

BOSTON — High winds at Fenway caused a monitor in the broadcast booth to fall onto Jerry Remy's head Saturday.

Around 7:30 p.m., fellow NESN announcer Dave O'Brien said the monitor slammed into Remy's head.

Remy was looked at by a resident doctor and was sent home to recover.

"We didn't want him coming on the air. He wanted to return to the air, we told him to go home, because he took quite the knock on the head," O'Brien said.

Remy is expected to be okay. Former player Steve Lyons, also an analyst during some games, came in for Remy.

The strong winds made for an interesting first inning.

Minnesota's Robbie Grossman hit a fly that appeared headed for center, but a gust blew it to right, sending right fielder Michael Martinez twisting as the ball fell for a triple.

There were a handful of stoppages as dirt and litter swirled around the field. Batters stepped out to wipe their eyes and Red Sox first baseman Hanley Ramirez headed to the dugout to have a trainer help him clear his left eye.
