CLEVELAND (AP) - Terry Francona's interview to be the Cleveland Indians' next manager is underway.
Francona, who managed the Boston Red Sox to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007, arrived at Progressive Field at 8:15 a.m. on Friday to begin a daylong interview. Francona spent some time on the field watching Indians employees play in a softball tournament. Francona worked as an adviser in Cleveland's front office in 2001 and has said he would like the chance to rejoin the club.
Francona spent the past year working as a TV analyst. He was fired in Boston last season after the team collapsed down the stretch.
On Thursday, Sandy Alomar Jr. interviewed with the Indians. He served as the club's interim manager for the final six games after Manny Acta was dismissed.
The Indians may name a new manager as early as next week.
