Let's celebrate Bobby Cox's HOF election with 20 photos/clips of him arguing with umpires
Along with Tony La Russa and Joe Torre, Bobby Cox was voted into the Hall of Fame by the Expansion Era committee on Monday. In addition to accumulating the fourth most wins of any manager in baseball history, the former Braves and Blue Jays skipper also racked up a record 158 ejections during his 32-year managerial career. Let's celebrate with 20 photos and clips of Cox pre-, mid- and post heave-ho. Congratulations, Bobby.
Absolutely disgusted with Tim Welke during the '96 World Series:
Welp, I guess that just about does it:
"I will always point my finger in your face!"
"Seriously, stop following me and I'll stop screaming"
Bobby vs. Jim Wolf
The finger is back ... and that face:
"How many times have you ejected me? That's hilarious"
Vin Scully calls a Bobby Cox ejection:
"I'll take on all of you at once"
Arguing balls and strikes is always a no-no:
"Yeah, go ahead and hide behind your friend"
Angel Hernandez gets the finger:
"You mean they made a Jurassic Park 2?!"
"No, he's not out, you're out!"
"Listen, all I'm trying to say is that your mustache is fake"
A true milestone: Ejection No. 150:
"Oh, now I'm upset?! Me!?"
Bobby's final heave-ho, just as fiery as his first:
