ATLANTA (AP) - There were 6s everywhere at Turner Field as the Braves honored Bobby Cox.
Cox's No. 6 was cut into the outfield grass, painted on the bases and in front of the dugouts and, finally, unveiled on the stadium's facade with eight others that have been retired by the team.
Cox, who retired as manager last year, is the first to have his number retired by the Braves primarily for his work as manager. He led the team to 15 playoff appearances and the 1995 World Series championship.
Former players Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Chipper Jones spoke in a ceremony before Friday night's game against the Cubs.
