The Red Sox have released a statement following the death of long-time Fenway Park Public Address Announcer Carl Beane:
"We are filled with sadness at this tragic news," said Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino. "No one loved his role with the Red Sox more than Carl did his. He adored the opportunity to pay homage each game to Sherm Feller, and to contribute to the culture of Fenway Park, a place he loved passionately. His legion of friends with the Red Sox and the media will miss him enormously, and all of Red Sox Nation will remember his presence, his warmth, and his voice.
"On behalf of John Henry, Tom Werner, our partners, and our entire organization, we extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Lorraine; his daughter, Nicole; and his granddaughters, Maddie and Gena."
Beane, 59, died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack while driving through Sturbridge, MA.
The team will pay tribute to Beane Thursday before their home game against the Cleveland Indians.
