Found May 25, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
Cleveland Indians manager (and former Boston Red Sox manager) Terry Francona playfully attacked NESN play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo before Friday night's game at Fenway Park. Francona first chased Orsillo out of the Indians dugout. Then, as Orsillo came back, Francona grabbed his tie and got him in a headlock. Fortunately for us, Orsillo's NESN colleague Jenny Dell captured it all on video. When it was all over, Orsillo finally left the dugout to fix his tie, which was a complete mess, while Francona shouted "Come back here, you big baby." Looks like if this Indians gig doesn't work out, Francona might have a future in the WWE. Video via @JennyDellNESN. H/T BLS. Visit us at holdoutsports.com and follow us on Twitter @HoldoutSports.
