Terry Francona’s changeup: He’ll be at Fenway

The Red Sox have invited every living ex-player and manager to the celebration, which will take place before an afternoon game against the Yankees. Francona declined the invitation to attend earlier this month, turning down personal appeals from owner John Henry and team president Larry Lucchino.
