Major League’s Lou Brown was Based on Bobby Cox?

Bobby Cox’s ultimate legacy might not be his 29 years in the dugout or his record 158 regular season ejections…it might just be something he had no direct contact with. The character Lou Brown from “Major League”. “I had done a movie with James Gammon,” actor Lew Temple told The Hall of Very Good, “and he said he that modeled Lou Brown, the manager (in “Major League”...

Bobby Cox Selling His Georgia Home — Just $1.8 Million

Here’s a shocker: former Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox doesn’t exactly the most hopping pad in Georgia. Sure, there are modern appliances and a “custom Bobby Cox wine cellar” but there is just nothing here that gets the juices flowing — unless you’re big on English style homes.

Player's Manager Girardi Uncharacteristically Blunt During Yankees' Latest Losing Streak

Joe Girardi is a relatively calm manager. Bobby Cox can rest easy that his career ejections record is safe, as Girardi has only been ejected 22 times as a manager. Occasionally, the cameras will flash to him after a questionable call on the field and Girardi will be seen shaking his head or pursing his lips. That’s about it, however. He can get excited when he’s trying to get...

"I'll Bake Your Glove" - A Bobby Cox Winter Singing Adventure

The story behind this winter singing event. This all happened, one day, on an outing to the crummy place known as Sports Authority which might not be crummy, but this one looked kind of crummy.
