Tom Glavine got an up-close look at the Hall of Fame on Monday during a tour ahead of his induction this summer.
Hall of Famer Tom Glavine says Alex Rodriguez appears to be "grasping at straws" in his lawsuit against the Major League Baseball Players Association.
Plaques for Tom Glavine and Bobby Cox will have Atlanta Braves logos, and Frank Thomas' will have the logo of the Chicago White Sox.
Greg Maddux and Tony La Russa will not have logos on their Hall of Fame plaques.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Hall of Fame says it's up to baseball writers to propose any changes in the selection process.
NEW YORK (AP) — Hall of Fame voters made up for last year's empty slate, electing Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas and Tom Glavine — three stars who've never been connected to performance-enhancing drugs.
NEW YORK (AP) — Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas elected to baseball Hall of Fame.
NEW YORK (AP) — Baseball writers could elect a quartet of players to the Hall of Fame for the first time in more than a half-century.
The trio will join veterans committee selections Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa at the induction ceremonies next July, making for a jam-packed program a year after Cooperstown welcomed a class with no living inductees.
NEW YORK (AP) — A new generation of starting pitchers and a self-proclaimed Mr. Clean of the Steroids Era will be ushered into baseball's Hall of Fame this summer. For tainted players, however, the doors to Cooperstown remain bolted.
ATLANTA (AP) — There will be an Atlanta Braves reunion this summer.
A look at Hall of Fame newcomers Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas:
NEW YORK (AP) — Greg Maddux could break a 22-year-old record Wednesday, though he won't become the first unanimous selection in the history of the baseball writers' Hall of Fame ballot.
Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, a former reporter for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, said Tuesday the only player he voted for was Jack Morris, on the writers' ballot for the 15th and final time after falling 42 votes shy last year.
ATLANTA (AP) — There were a lot of guys who threw harder than Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine.
"Had I not gotten in, I know the biggest disappointment for me would have been missing out on that opportunity to go in with Bobby and Greg," Glavine said. "Those two guys I spent a lot of my career with and were very influential on me as a baseball player. And to have the opportunity to go in with two guys that were a teammate and a manager for a long time, guys that were such a big part of my career, but also helped make me a better player, that's a great opportunity."
"When I came here last year, obviously, it was more to see the museum, so to speak, and kind of hoping I would be here some day," Glavine said as he stood in the plaque gallery, only feet from where his bronze plaque will be placed on a wall in four months. "Now, I'm here with the objective of becoming more familiar with this place, and where my place will be in terms of my plaque, so it's a little bit different in that regard."
