October 20, 2006 - Gateway manager Danny Cox is the latest Frontier League skipper to leave his post.
The Grizzlies announced today that the former St. Louis Cardinal has resigned following his fourth year as manager, his first with a losing record. Cox, who had been the team's pitching coach in 2001-02, had been on the coaching staff since Gateway entered the league in 2001. His 197 career wins are eighth all-time in league history. Cox managed the Grizzlies to the 2003 pennant; his 2004 team won a franchise-record 56 games, but lost to the RiverHawks in a five-game, first-round showdown.
No replacement has been named.
Cox is the fourth Frontier League manager to depart since the end of the season. He joins Greg Jelks, who won the pennant with Evansville, Windy City's Brent Bowers and River City's Randy Martz.
