Bobby Cox to manage a Braves exhibition


ATLANTA (AP) — Bobby Cox is returning to the dugout — but only for one exhibition.
    The former Braves manager will be back in uniform to manage the organization's top prospects against the current major leaguers on April 3.
    The game will be played at the home of the Braves' Triple-A Gwinnett team near Atlanta.
    Atlanta planned the exhibition as a bridge between spring training and the regular-season opener on April 5. The game will be played instead of an exhibition against an AL opponent at Turner Field.
    Cox retired as manager after the 2010 season with 2,504 regular-season wins, fourth behind Connie Mack, John McGraw and Tony La Russa.
    His No. 6 was retired by the Braves.
