Jim Corsi, a Newton native who made it all the way to the Major Leagues, won a World Series and pitched for the Boston Red Sox, has died from cancer. He was 60 years old. According to his close friend, WBZ-TV Sports Director Steve Burton, Corsi “passed away from cancer peacefully overnight with his family by his side.”
The 60-year-old Saint Leo University alum told the news station he doesn’t have long to live and has accepted the circumstances.
“I’m at peace. I know if I die, I’m going to a better place,” he told the news station. “That’s the No. 1 thing. I feel sorry for everybody I’ll leave behind.”
Corsi — who also played for the Oakland Athletics, Houston Astros, Florida Marlins, and Baltimore Orioles — said he regretted not undergoing a colonoscopy years ago that may have helped him avoid the cancer’s spread.
Corsi was diagnosed with Stage IV liver cancer and terminal colon cancer. The segment touched on his daughter’s Oct. 2020 wedding, in which Corsi walked her down the aisle.
“It was the most important thing he could’ve done,” his daughter Julianne said. “It was just so meaningful and special. It was amazing.”
