Nick Cafardo, a veteran Boston Globe reporter who has written about the Boston Red Sox for decades, died Thursday at the team’s spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla., the newspaper announced. He was 62.

Per the Globe, Cafardo was apparently stricken with an embolism at JetBlue Park, the Red Sox’s spring training home. Members of the Red Sox medical team were reportedly unable to revive him. He was reportedly working at the park despite it being his day off.

Condolences to his family and loved ones.

Loved reading Carfardo when I used to read newspapers. He was very plugged in and never tried to make himself the story, like a lot of journalists did once sports radio, ESPN, and social media started using newspaper sports journalists as regular reporters and editorialists.

RIP Nick. My best wishes to all your family and friends.
