There are few personalities as beloved in Atlanta Braves lore as Bobby Cox, and that showed up once more when he threw out the first pitch of game two of the National League Division Series on Friday.
Cox said previously that he was nervous about throwing a strike or not, but he delivered the ball pretty well to Tim Hudson without bouncing it or sailing it over anyone's head.
The last time Cox managed a game that counted (other than the minor league exhibitions) was the Braves' loss to the San Francisco Giants in the 2010 NLDS. He is the fourth-winningest manager in history and is eligible for Hall of Fame induction in 2014.
