BOSTON — Stacy Wakefield, wife of late Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield, passed away on Wednesday, the team announced in a press release.

Both Wakefields had been diagnosed with cancer last year. Tim passed away on Oct. 1, the final day of the 2023 season. The 57-year-old knuckleballer had been battling brain cancer, the news of which only became public the week before.

The Wakefields were beloved members of the Red Sox organization, known for their extensive philanthropic efforts and generosity. They leave behind a son, Trevor, and a daughter, Brianna.

The Red Sox issued the following statement on behalf of the Wakefield family:

“It is with deep sadness that we share that our beloved mother, daughter, sister, niece, and aunt, Stacy, passed away today at her home in Massachusetts. She was surrounded by her family and dear friends, as well as her wonderful caretakers and nurses. The loss is unimaginable, especially in the wake of losing Tim just under five months ago. Our hearts are beyond broken.


“We will remember Stacy as a strong, loving, thoughtful and kind person, who was as down-to-earth as they come. We feel so lucky to have had her in our lives, and we take comfort in the fact that she will be reunited with Tim, the love of her life.

“We would like to thank all of Stacy’s doctors, nurses and caretakers who helped her from diagnosis to today — we are eternally grateful for your unmatched care and support. And to all of you who have sent well wishes over these last several months, we truly appreciate your kindness.

“We kindly ask for privacy at this time as we try to process this profound loss.”
