 Former Atlanta Braves teammates Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine highlight the 2014 class heading to Cooperstown.  The two 300-game winners were elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame today by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.  Also making the cut is longtime Chicago White Sox first baseman Frank Thomas. 

Maddux, Glavine and Thomas were in their first year of eligibility.  It’s the first time three first-time eligibles have been elected to the Hall of Fame since Nolan Ryan, George Brett and Robin Yount in 1999.

Maddux was a four-time Cy Young recipient who won 355 games in 23 seasons with the Cubs, Braves, Dodgers and Padres. 

Glavine was a two-time Cy Young winner who racked up 305 victories in 22 seasons with the Braves and Mets. 

Thomas was a two-time AL MVP with a career .301 average and 521 home runs in 19 seasons with the White Sox, A’s and Blue Jays. 

Former managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa were previously elected as part of the 2014 class last month by the Expansion Era Committee.  Induction ceremonies will be July 27th in Cooperstown. (Metro Networks Inc.)
