Terry Francona told MLB.com that he's surrounded by them. He recently ate 17 of the frozen treats — but that he woke up later that night feeling sick to his stomach.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene. If you take Terry Francona out to the ballgame, don't buy him peanuts or cracker jacks. He wants popsicles. Francona manages the Cleveland Indians, and he told mlb.com that he's surrounded by them. There are boxes of popsicles in the dugout. They're also offered on the team plane. And during a recent game, Francona ate 17 popsicles without even thinking about it. Big surprise, he woke up a bit later in the night feeling sick to his stomach. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
