In their first year of eligibility, former Atlanta Braves pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Their induction marks the first time two teammates have been selected in the same year since 1974, when ex-Yankees Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford were welcomed into the Hall. Maddux, who came close to being the first ever unanimous HOF selection with 97.2 percent of votes, finished his storied career with 355 wins—the most by any right-handed pitcher since World War II. Among other accolades, Maddux won four Cy Young awards, led the National League in ERA four times and was named to eight All-Star teams.
