Tragic Loss: Wife of Red Sox Legend Tim Wakefield Passes Away Just Months After His Death

According to the AP, Stacy Wakefield, the late wife of two-time World Series winner and former Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield, passed away. Less than five months after her husband's death at the age of 57, she passed away on Wednesday at her Massachusetts home, according to a statement from her family made public via the Red Sox.

Based on internet information, Stacy was 53 years old. "Her amazing caregivers and nurses, together with her family and close friends, were there to support her," the statement said. "The loss is unfathomable, particularly considering that Tim passed away less than five months ago. Our hearts are shattered beyond repair."

The family did not disclose the reason for the death, just the diagnosis. Tim Wakefield's former Red Sox teammate Curt Schilling revealed on a podcast in September that the Wakefield brothers had received cancer diagnoses. Schilling said that Stacy had pancreatic cancer and Tim had brain cancer.

As soon as the Wakefields received the news, there was an outpouring of sympathy and condemnation directed at Schilling for revealing the information without their consent. The family statement went on, "We will remember Stacy as a strong, loving, caring, and kind girl, who was as down-to-earth as they come." "We are very grateful that she was in our lives, and we find solace in the knowledge that she will see Tim again—the love of her life." Trevor, 19, and Brianna, 17, are Stacy and Tim's surviving children, according to People.
