A walk-off single from David Ross in the bottom of the 15th inning of last night’s game marked the 2000th time in his managerial career that Bobby Cox has entered the locker room victorious. Having spent 24 of his 28-year career as a manager in the Braves organization, Bobby finds himself fourth on the all-time list for wins by a manager with a single franchise. He trails only Connie Mack, John McGraw and Walter Alston, who only leads Bobby by 40 games.
A quick congrats to Bobby Cox on reaching this milestone and we look forward to seeing some more wins out of him as he wraps up a great career here in Atlanta. When he finally walks away from Turner Field and the Braves (which will likely be on his own schedule), he will be remembered as one of the all-time greats for this franchis and in Major League Baseball.
