Teary Cox gets farewell from current, ex-Braves

ATLANTA — Bobby Cox reached behind his sunglasses to dab his eyes a few times as the Braves paid tribute Saturday to their longtime manager.

The ceremony before the game against the Phillies attracted about 70 former players and coaches, who all wore their white Braves jerseys and sat in the infield.

Cox was given a 2010 Lexus LS460 from the Braves and an 11-night cruise from his current players. He said "Holy Cow!" when shown a picture of another gift: a bench made with autographed bats, balls and baseball cards from every player on the team.

Cox, 60, is retiring after his 29th season as a manager.

PUSH FOR MUSIAL: Stan Musial took a long, slow lap in a golf cart around the Busch Stadium warning track as part of the Cardinals' campaign to have the Hall of Famer, 89, honored with the Presidential Freedom medal.

LOWELL APPLAUDED: The Red Sox honored retiring 3B Mike Lowell during a 20-minute pregame ceremony.

CUBS: GM Jim Hendry interviewed former Mariners and Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin in Houston.

ROCKIES: C Miguel Olivo was diagnosed with a mild concussion after being struck on the back of the head and neck by Albert Pujols' backswing on Friday.
