The Cleveland Guardians are getting ready to ramp up their official Spring Training exhibition schedule later this week and hope to build off an impressive 92-win campaign. Usually, Spring Training means a fresh start for every coach and player on the roster, but that's not exactly how manager Terry Francona kicked off this important time of year.

On Tuesday, it was revealed Francona started Spring Training on an unbelievable note.

Francona was in the process of preparing the annual team speech for every member of the organization, a pivotal moment to get the club in the right head space before the season. But, this preparation turned into something you might see in a comedy movie.

Francona opted to make edits of his important speech and skipped dinner with his fellow coaches to further prepare. Unfortunately, this resulted in a major mishap in the kitchen.

The longtime Guardians skipper made pasta instead, but did not cook the pasta fully and broke a tooth in the process. He then arrived back at Spring Training camp at 3:30 am to finalize the speech before spilling coffee all over it.

You can't make this up.
