Glavine To Join Bobby Cox And Greg Maddux

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Tom Glavine, who with 305 wins is the fourth-winningest left-hander in Major League history, was one of three players elected to the Hall of Fame in voting results announced Wednesday. Glavine received 91.9 percent of the vote.

Maddux, who won 355 games and four Cy Young Awards, was left off the ballot by 16 voters. Houston Astros second baseman Craig Biggio received 74.8 percent of the vote, missing election by two votes.

Maddux and Glavine will join their former manager Bobby Cox in Cooperstown, N.Y., for the induction ceremony July 27.

Maddux and Glavine were one of the best 1-2 combinations in baseball history, and both pitched for teams other than Atlanta. Maddux started his career with the Cubs and ended it with the Dodgers, while Glavine fled to the Mets before returning to the Braves for one final season.
