Today the AJC’s Mark Bradley takes us inside the Turner Field clubhouse, so we can see what Bobby Cox’s semi-secret office looks like.
Bradley says Cox “heads to the Batcave 3 1/2 hours before gametime, and he watches TV (two flatscreens) and checks the weather (three computer screens) and smokes a cigar and entertains visitors.”
The office is high-tech, and it’s got all the things a big league manager would want.
“We’ve got everything in here,” Cox says of his hideaway. “We’ve got popcorn, a refrigerator, TVs, the weather.” Then, looking up. “We’ve got a defibrillator.” (Indeed, there’s one mounted on the wall.) And there’s even a bathroom next door.
I don’t know about you, but if I get to work tomorrow and find my boss has installed a defibrillator in my cubicle, I’m going to do one of two things: look for a new job, or go on a diet. Probably both.
