SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Atlanta Braves manager Bobby Cox managed his last game Monday night at Turner Field. His retirement began with the Braves defeat at the hands of the San Francisco Giants.

After the game, the Giants momentarily stopped their brief celebration, faced the Braves' dugout and tipped their caps to Cox. Fans cheered and applauded right after the game as a tribute to Cox was played on the video board. Many say they're saddened by his departure.

Cox is the longest serving manager in Braves history. He led the Braves to a record 14 straight division championships, five NL championships and the 1995 World Series. This was his first wild-card team.
