NH summer league offers job to Ex-Red Sox manager
LACONIA, N.H.—Former Boston Red Sox manager Terry Francona could have a new job in New Hampshire -- if he's willing to work for $6,000 per year.
The Laconia Muskrats of the New England Collegiate Baseball League faxed a job offer to Francona's agent immediately after he was released from his contract with the major league club last week, but haven't heard back.
Muskrats owner and general manager Noah Crane says he's included some unique benefits in the offer, including a parking spot; 25 percent off at a burrito restaurant; a free gym membership; and 25 tokens to an area arcade.
The New England Collegiate Baseball League has 12 teams. The Muskrats finished the regular season 18-24 before advancing to the championships, where they lost to the Keene Swamp Bats.
