The Red Sox fired manager Alex Cora, a day after baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred implicated him in the sport's sign-stealing scandal. Cora was the bench coach for the Astros when
they illicitly stole signs and won the 2017 World Series. Manfred mentioned Cora by name 11 times in a nine-page report Monday, describing him as a key person in the planning and execution of the
cheating scheme. The Astros fired manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow an hour after Manfred suspended them for the 2020 season for their role in the cheating scheme.
The team did not announce a successor.
Some team members as well as owner John Henry are expected to be on hand during a Red Sox Fan Fest at MGM Springfield this weekend.
