Stacy Wakefield, the widow of the late Major League Baseball player, Tim Wakefield, has died, the Boston Red Sox has confirmed. Her death comes five months after the pitcher died in October 2023.

The team announced Stacy’s death in a press release Wednesday 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,” the Wakefield family said in a statement. “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.”

The family added, “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.”

Both Stacy and Tim — whose famous “knuckleball” made him one of the most dominant Major League pitchers of the early 2000s — were diagnosed with different forms of cancer, according to MLB pitcher Curt Schilling, who revealed the couple’s diagnoses against their wishes last September.

Schilling, 56, had said on his podcast that Tim — who was his teammate on the Red Sox from 2004 to 2007 — had been diagnosed with an “aggressive form of brain cancer” and that his wife has pancreatic cancer.
