The Red Sox Confirm Tim Wakefield is Receiving Treatment and Request Privacy

Listen to this article

The Boston Red Sox have revealed that Tim Wakefield is currently undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness.

They have also requested privacy for the former pitcher and his wife, Stacy Wakefield, as this information was disclosed without their consent by Curt Schilling, a former teammate of Wakefield.

In response, the Red Sox issued a statement expressing their respect for the Wakefields’ desire to keep their health a private matter during their treatment.

Tim Wakefield, known for his knuckleball, had a successful career in baseball, contributing to the Red Sox’s World Series victories in 2004 and 2007, and was inducted into the team’s Hall of Fame in 2016.

He has also been involved in charitable work in Boston and has worked for NESN, the Red Sox broadcast network, since 2012. On the other hand, Curt Schilling, who played alongside Wakefield from 2004 to 2007, retired in 2009 and faced controversy for his social media posts.

Schilling was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2014, which later went into remission. Despite his contributions, he narrowly missed induction into the national Baseball Hall of Fame in 2022, falling short of the required 75% vote with 58.6%.
