Cox Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame
Monday, 09 December 2013

Dec 9th---The man who skippered the Braves to unprecedented heights, and became so popular and so ingrained in Georgia summers that folks identified him by his first name alone, is officially bound for Cooperstown.

Retired manager Bobby Cox was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee on Monday, along with Tony La Russa and Joe Torre. All three were unanimous selections by the 16-member committee.

Cox will be inducted July 27 at Cooperstown, N.Y., in a ceremony expected to have a distinct Braves flavor as pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine will likely be enshrined with their former manager.
