Bobby Cox In The Record Books


Recommended Posts

congrats to bobby cox...


ATLANTA -- Braves manager Bobby Cox didn't really want a piece of the record. But the inevitable occurred during the ninth inning of Saturday afternoon's 2-1 loss to the Tigers at Turner Field. After Brian McCann was ejected for arguing a called third strike, Cox emerged from the dugout and within a minute he was handed his 131st career ejection by plate umpire Chad Fairchild. Cox is now tied for the most career ejections with Hall of Fame manager John McGraw, whose total includes the 14 ejections he received as a player.


Cox, who ranks fourth on the all-time managerial wins list, has received each of his career ejections as a manager. Many of them have come while protecting players like the usually-reserved McCann, who took definite objection to the called third strike.


With the home crowd chanting his name, Cox didn't make much of a scene. After saying the magic words, he saw Fairchild give a less-than-demonstrative ejection signal.
