He also served as general manager of the Braves from 1985-1990 - drafting Jones first overall in 1990 - before moving back into the dugout for a second stint as manager, with John Schuerholz assuming GM duties.

Former Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox is recovering after suffering a stroke on Tuesday.

The news comes as a shock for Braves fans, as he was just on hand for Atlanta's home opener this past Monday night against the Chicago Cubs, where he participated in pregame festivities.

The Braves retired Cox's No. 6 following his final season as manager in 2010.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he was surprised that Durant got ejected. "I think that's disrespectful as a player. With 15 technicals apiece this season, Green and Durant find themselves among the league leaders in the category.


Bobby Cox was a staple of the Braves success in the 1990s though the 2005 winning 14 straight division titles and the 1995 World Series as the teams manager.

The 77-year-old is known as a fighter, having been ejected almost 160 times during his career leading to his holding the all-time record for Major League Baseball ejections.

Even in retirement, Cox has remained a regular around the Braves.

Sources said Cox was taken to a Cobb County hospital for a yet to be disclosed medical condition. Our thoughts and prayers are with him as he recovers. Three years later, he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. He entered the Hall of Fame in 2014 with Maddux and Glavine.
