Bobby Cox Gets Number Retired, Throws Out First Pitch, Gets ‘Ejected’ by Umpire (Video)

Some old habits die hard.

On a night when Bobby Cox returned to Atlanta to have his number retired by the Braves organization, he had some fun with a familiar foe: the umpires.

After Cox threw out the ceremonial first pitch, he greeted the umpires for the night's game and home plate ump Tim Timmons playfully ejected Cox.

Cox holds the all-time record for ejections in MLB with 161 in his career. Better make it 162.
