Terry Francona, Dan Shaughnessy To Write Book On Ex-Red Sox Manager

Terry Francona and Dan Shaughnessy are joining forces to write a book covering the storied tenure of the ex-Boston Red Sox manager who was let go this offseason after one of the worst late-season collapses in MLB history.

Francona served as the Red Sox' skipper since the 2004 season and had a record of 744-552 in eight seasons while leading the team to two World Series titles in 2004 and again in 2007.

"We're thrilled to publish the story of Terry Francona's eight-year stint as manager of the Boston Red Sox," said Gary Gentel, president of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's Trade Division, according to The Boston Globe. "Francona was arguably the most successful manager in franchise history during one of the most storied chapters of that history. Meanwhile, Dan Shaughnessy has covered the Red Sox for more than three decades. This powerful combination is certain to craft a book that will inform and entertain any fan of baseball." (via NESN)
