Cleveland supervisor Terry Francona went skydiving for the primary time final week, and he preferred it a lot that he persuaded a few Indians coaches to hitch him for one more bounce on Thursday.
The workforce posted video on Friday of Francona making his second bounce from 2 miles up, this time joined by bench coach Brad Mills and pitching coach Carl Willis.
“Hey, if this goes unhealthy, inform Millsie to not screw up the pitching.”
Tito went skydiving AGAIN, however he introduced some associates alongside this time …

Francona made his first plunge on March 14, inspired by some Navy SEALs who have been understanding at a pool with him. “It was unbelievable,” he instructed MLB.com.
He jumped in tandem with an teacher.
“For me, to get out of the aircraft was the toughest factor,” Francona mentioned. “He is like, ‘Pull your legs up.’ And I am like, ‘They’re!’ However they open the door and that wind comes — and you are like, ‘Oh my god.'”
Francona mentioned he did not like leaping and not using a helmet, which is a requirement for first-time skydivers.
The second time round, with a helmet this time, “the free fall was simply superior,” he mentioned.
When Francona made the primary bounce, he joked that Mills had moved all his issues into the supervisor’s workplace. So he introduced his bench coach with him this time.
After Cleveland’s recreation in opposition to the Texas Rangers in Shock, Arizona, on Thursday, Francona confirmed reporters an image of Mills nearly to leap out of a aircraft.
“Millsie made it,” Francona mentioned. “I used to be actually anxious about that. If Millsie did not make it, our guys would not know the place to go tomorrow.”
