PEARL, Miss.—Long time manager for the Atlanta Braves Bobby Cox will be in the state Saturday.
The Mississippi Braves confirmed Friday that Cox will be coaching the Organization’s Future Stars against the current squad of the Atlanta Braves.
This game is being treated as another exhibition game for the Braves as they get set to start the regular season next week.
Cox led the Braves to a World Series Championship in 1995 and the organization has since retired his number 6 jersey to commemorate his career there.
The Mississippi Braves public relations said there will be no formal time for autographs from players or coaches but if they choose to come over to fans during warm-ups that is up to them individually as usual.
Cox holds the all-time record for most ejections from a ball game at 158. He’ll have the opportunity for another unofficial ejection and/or win Saturday at Trustmark Park in front of a sold out crowd.
