Terry Francona is recovering from a surgical procedure done on Thursday to correct an irregular heartbeat, and the Cleveland Indians manager did not make the trip to Miami to manage in the All-Star Game.
But the Brad Mills-led staff ensured he could still be there in some fashion.
A cardboard cutout surfaced of a shirtless Francona in the American League locker room. However, the cutout’s body portion reveals a physique that Francona unlikely possesses at 58.
Kudos to the creators of such a display. Surely, Francona will be asked about this once he returns to the Tribe’s clubhouse.
