Terry Francona may attend Fenway Park’s big party after all.

ESPN reported that the former Red Sox manager told the network on Wednesday that he would accept the team’s invitation to attend the 100th anniversary celebration of Fenway Park on Friday. Francona is now an analyst for ESPN.

Last week, Francona told the Globe’s Dan Shaughnessy that his feelings were still too raw after parting ways with the Red Sox following eight seasons as manager following the 2011 season.

“I just feel like someone in the organization went out of their way to hurt me,” Francona said, in reference to an explosive Globe story that examined why the Red Sox blew a 9 1/2-game lead and missed out on the playoffs last September.

The Red Sox will host the Yankees on Friday on the 100-year anniversary of the first game played at Fenway Park. They have invited every living former Red Sox player back to Fenway Park to take part in the ceremonies.
