Third-Generation Francona Works in the Angels’ Front-Office

Nick Francona, son of Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona and grandson of former Major Leaguer Tito Francona, is currently working for the Los Angeles Angels organization in the advance scouting department.

Nick was drafted by the Boston Red Sox out of high school in 2010, but chose to play college baseball. A shoulder injury in college prevented him from pursuing a professional baseball career. He wound up serving in the Marines Corps for 3 1/2 years, doing a tour of duty in Afghanistan, where he held a rank of captain.

Now he is pursuing a baseball career in a front-office capacity.
