According to MLB.com's Jordan Bastian, Francona said he had "something small" planned for his former bullpen coach.
This isn't the first time Francona and the Indians have gone out of their way to welcome Cash back to Cleveland. A similar message graced Progressive Field's scoreboard last June.

Cash joined Francona's coaching staff with the Indians in 2012 and left following the 2014 season, after he was named the Rays' manager. He also played for Francona's Boston Red Sox in 2007-08 and 2010, primarily as a catcher.
