Guardians manager has beloved scooter stolen from Cleveland residence

Veteran Cleveland Guardians manager Terry Francona has been known to zip around the city on an electric scooter before and after games.

That beloved scooter is now missing.

The team confirmed the theft to multiple media outlets, including ABC News 5 in Cleveland. Cleveland Police spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said the scooter was stolen between 9:30 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. on Saturday. According to, Ciaccia said Francona, who still had the key, noticed it missing Saturday morning before Guards Fest, the team’s fan festival.

It’s not uncommon to see Francona, 63, on board his scooter on game days, high-fiving and stopping to chat with fans. It has become such a common occurrence that the team even held a bobblehead giveaway in 2015 that featured Francona on the scooter.

Francona is entering his 23rd season as a big-league manager, and 11th year in Cleveland, where he’s won a franchise record 845 games. He won two World Series championships with the Boston Red Sox, helping the team break an 86-year title drought in 2004.
