Hall of Fame Signed Baseball - Bobby Cox
Cox (b. 1941) played briefly in the majors in 1968 and 1969 for the Yankees. Originally a third baseman, he gained far more notoriety when he became a manager. He managed the Atlanta Braves from 1978 to 1981, the Blue Jays from 1982 to 1985 and then back to the Braves (after a stint as their general manager) from 1990 to 2010. In all, he managed over thirty seasons, winning the division 15 times (once with the Blue Jays and a record 14 straight with the Braves). He went to 5 World Series, winning once (1995). He was also a 4-time Manager of the Year (AL - 1985; NL - 1991, 2004, 2005).
Cox was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in 2014.
