Anyone who has listened to a Celtics broadcast has heard Tommy Heinsohn mention "The Redhead in Needham." In every broadcast Tommy makes a mention of his beloved wife, Helen with that affectionate nickname. Celtics' nation is saddened to learn that Helen lost her 6 year battle with cancer yesterday. Our hearts are heavy today and our prayers are with Tommy and the Heinsohn family.
