Francona Gets Lost Walking To Home Ballpark

Another chapter in the very large tome, "You Can't Make This Stuff Up". New Indians manager Terry Francona got lost walking to his new home ballpark, Progressive Field in downtown Cleveland. Terry—as is his wont—lives in an apartment just two short blocks from the park. Nevertheless, he somehow lost his way. Having actually walked to Progressive Field from a downtown hotel, I can say you don't need to be Amerigo Vespucci to find it. Said the former Red Sox skipper, "I got lost three times. Even when I got to the garage two people who work here said, 'Hey, do you know where you're going?' I was like, 'Nope.'" That's our Terry!
