BOSTON -- Terry Francona may be in attendance for Fenway's 100th anniversary Friday, but Theo Epstein won't be.
The general manager of the team's only two championship teams of the last 93 years was not invited to the celebration.
The news came as a surprise to principal owner John Henry, who said he was unaware of the decision until contacted by a reporter.
"Apparently we decided to just invite uniformed personnel," said Henry, noting that the team hadn't invited former GMs Mike Port and Dan Duquette either.
Epstein could not be reached for comment.
