The group posted video on Friday of Francona making his second soar from two miles up, this time joined by bench coach Brad Mills and pitching coach Carl Willis.
“Hey, if this goes dangerous, inform Millsie to not screw up the pitching.”

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 informed 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 with no helmet, which first-time skydivers should do.
The second time round, with a helmet this time, “the free fall was simply superior,” he mentioned.
When Francona made the primary soar, 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 sport towards the Texas Rangers in Shock, Arizona, Thursday, Francona confirmed reporters an image of Mills nearly to leap out of a aircraft.
“Millsie made it,” mentioned Francona. “I used to be actually frightened about that. If Millsie did not make it, our guys would not know the place to go tomorrow.”
