If this baseball thing doesn’t work out, perhaps Francona’s future is in comedy
Terry Francona won two World Series with the Boston Red Sox and has been a driving force behind the offseason momentum the Cleveland Indians currently are experiencing.
In between, he was an analyst on ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” show, and he’s also managed the Phillies and served in the Indians’ front office after his playing career ended.
In other words, Francona appears to be a baseball lifer.
But if he ever decides to get out of the game where he’s spent his entire life – his father, remember, played for the Indians from 1959 to 1964 – he might just wind up at the Improv or another comedy club.
Francona’s latest deft comedic touch was on display late last week when reporters in Goodyear caught him riding a scooter to a magazine photo shoot. Indians baseball information coordinator Court Berry-Tripp offered to give the skipper a lift, but Francona instead offered to meet the crew on site.
The video below is what ensued.
