Maddux, Glavine join Cox in Baseball Hall of Fame



ATLANTA — There will be an Atlanta Braves reunion this summer.
It will be in Cooperstown on July 27.
Longtime Braves stalwart pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine were elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Wednesday, joining their manager for all those years, Bobby Cox, who was selected last month by the expansion-era committee.
Slugger Frank Thomas, a Georgia native, also was chosen for induction.
Maddux made it by an overwhelming margin, receiving 97.2 percent of the votes from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. He won 355 games, four Cy Young Awards and a record 18 Gold Gloves.
Glavine, who pitched 10 years with Maddux in the Braves’ stellar rotation, was selected by nearly 92 percent of the voters. He had 305 wins and two Cy Youngs.
