Dan Roche 1-On-1 With Terry Francona Back At Fenway

BOSTON (AP) — Terry Francona is back at Fenway Park as an opposing manager for the first time since he left the Red Sox.

Francona brought the Cleveland Indians to Boston for a four-game series starting Thursday night. He was let go by the Red Sox after eight years as their manager following a September 2011 collapse left them out of the playoffs.

He was relaxed and spoke calmly for about 20 minutes in the visiting dugout before the game. After Francona met with reporters, Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz came into the dugout and they embraced.

Francona said the Indians arrived in Boston at 5 a.m. and he’s been too busy to think whether he’d be emotional coming back to Fenway.
