Just want to clarify a few things regarding Bobby Cox..— Zach Klein (@ZachKleinWSB) April 26, 2019
I'm told he's getting better.. he's walking.. he's out of the original hospital he was sent to.
I'm told he's not at home..he's rehabbing and has a long way to go, but as we know.. Bobby is a fighter.
Sources told Klein that the MLB Hall of Fame manager has regained feeling on the right side of his body and is able to walk with the assistance of a cane.
Klein said Cox has not regained the ability to speak but said he is making progress every day. Klein learned that Cox is rehabbing and has a long road ahead.
Cox served for 25 years as the team’s manager. He has been considered the ultimate players' manager.
He rooted hard for his men from the dugout, and they played hard for him on the field. Cox retired from the Braves in 2010.
In 2014, he received baseball's highest award: He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, along with two of his big three starting pitchers, Greg Maddux and Tommy Glavine.
Cox led the Braves to 14 consecutive division titles from 1991-2005, including the World Series championship in 1995. Over his career, he managed 4,505 games and compiled a 2,504-2,001 record (.556).
