Report: Terry Francona will attend Fenway celebration
After previously stating he would skip Friday's 100th anniversary festivities at Fenway Park, former Red Sox manager Terry Francona has apparently changed his mind and will attend.
Former Red Sox manager Terry Francona has apparently changed his mind and will attend Friday's frestivities at Fenway Park to celebrate the stadium's 100th anniversary, according to his co-worker at ESPN, John Buccigross.
Buccigross tweeted this:
Francona had said he wouldn't "go back there and start hugging people and stuff without feeling a bit hypocritical."
Despite the bad blood, it's a nice gesture of Francona to put those hurt feelings behind him and attend the ceremony. Hopefully the Boston crowd shows him the type of love the Boston brass will not.
