Former Red Sox Manager Terry Francona Says What Happened at Boston Marathon Is ‘Unfair’ (Video)


Tuesday night’s Red Sox-Indians game would have been one where everyone talked about Terry Francona managing against the Red Sox for the first time.

But after Monday’s events at the Boston Marathon, Francona’s pregame news conference centered around the place he called home for eight years.

“[Patriots’ Day] is so special to the people in Boston. They’re so proud of that day,” Francona said.

The typically joyful day in Boston was rocked Monday when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the race. Hear what else the former Sox manager had to say in the video above.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
