Based on this photo from the Sports Illustrated vault, Red Sox manager Terry Francona was quite a stud when he was in college. Check out that hair.

"That's a disgrace," Dustin Pedroia said. "Who did he think he was fooling?"

The shot was taken when Francona was playing summer ball in Alaska. He's better known for being a manager, but Tito was the NCAA player of the year at Arizona and the 22nd overall pick of the 1980 draft.

Meanwhile, last night in Minnesota, a fan dressed up as the "Francona Bobblehead" and stood next to the Red Sox dugout dancing around.

Francona thought it was funny and gave the guy a friendly thumbs-up.
