Terry Francona has all but confirmed that this will be his final season as a manager. Though he has not said so officially, the Cleveland Guardians came prepared on Wednesday.
The Guardians played a tribute to Francona prior to Wednesday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds. The game marked what is expected to be Francona’s final home game as the team’s manager.
The 64-year-old is so well loved in Cleveland that he had to come out of the dugout twice for curtain calls.
