Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Wednesday.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Foster reports:
Pitcher Greg Maddux, named on 97% of the baseball writers’ ballots. He won 355 games, mostly with the Atlanta Braves where he pitched with another of this year’s inductees.
(Maddux) “I just think it’s awesome to go into the Hall of Fame with Tom Glavine.”
Tom Glavine tells the Major League Baseball Network:
(Glavine) “I appreciate the help that he gave me as well.”
Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas also gets a plaque at the hall in Cooperstown, New York. The announcement also on MLB:
(MLB) “He’s the only player in history to string together seven consecutive seasons with at least 20 home runs, 100 RBIs, 100 walks and a .300 batting average.”
It’s a 75% threshold to get in. Houston Astros star Craig Biggio, just short, named on 74.8% of the ballots.
