Terry Francona is beloved in Boston.

The former Red Sox manager led the team to its first World Series title in 86 years, and a second one three years later, compiling an 8-0 record in Fall Classic games.

He’s also one of current Red Sox manager John Farrell’s best friends, dating back to their days as players in the Cleveland Indians’ organization. He’ll accompany Farrell to his first chemotherapy treatment this week, but he first spent a few minutes with NESN’s Tom Caron — who recently battled cancer himself — before Monday’s Red Sox-Indians game at Fenway Park.

Check out the exclusive one-on-one interview between TC and Tito, as seen on “Red Sox Gameday Live,” in the video above.
