Major League Baseball broadcaster Jerry “RemDawg” Remy said in a radio show Thursday that he is thinking about opening a restaurant in Portland.

Remy was in town for the NESN Spring Training Kickoff Tour and made the remarks during a radio interview with Teddy McKay and Sandra Harris on WHOM 94.9, when he was talking about what he does during the off season.

“We’ve been exploring some possibilities up here, and I think it would be a great place to come,” Remy said.

Remy already owns four “Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill” restaurants in Massachusetts. There’s one at Fenway, one at Seaport and one at Logan International Airport. A new location just opened in Fall River a couple of months ago.

“We have looked into the Portland area,” he told the radio hosts. “It seems like a natural with the minor league ball club here. We’ll see if we can get some kind of a deal worked out.”
