Former Atlanta Braves and Toronto Blue Jays manager Bobby Cox was hospitalized after he suffered a potential stroke, media reports said Tuesday. The news of the 77-year-old's health condition was first reported by Atlanta’s WSB-TV.

Cox's hospitalization comes just one day after he attended the Braves home opener at SunTrust Park, when they registered an 8-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Cox, who served 25 years as the team’s manager, has a net worth of $45 million. A source confirmed WSB-TV that Cox remains in an Atlanta-area hospital and specifics about his condition is unknown.

Born Robert Joseph "Bobby" Cox on May 21, 1941, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he was the man who took the Atlanta Braves to the World Series championship in 1995. The four-time Manager of the Year also played two seasons for the New York Yankees. He was inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame in 2014. In 2019, the International League announced Cox would be inducted into its Hall of Fame.

Cox managed the Braves from 1978 to 1981 and again from 1990 until retiring in 2010. Cox has remained close to the Braves since his retirement. He was also part of the Toronto Blue Jays from 1982 to 1985.

He was also ranked fourth on the Baseball All-time Managerial Wins list.

On Tuesday, several of Cox's fans sent out their thoughts and prayers for the recovery of the legend.

Cox is married to Pamela Cox and has eight children. In 1995, Cox was arrested on assault charges against his wife. According to police reports, Pamela called the police to their home after, she said, Cox punched her in the face and pulled her hair during an argument. The police report noted that Pamela's face was red when they reached the scene. Cox was released from jail later that night on $1,000 bond.

Later, Pamela dispelled the charge that the Braves' manager struck her during an argument at their home.
