TOM GLAVINE RUMORS & GOSSIP
Nineteen new players have been added to the Hall of Fame ballot for baseball. Headlining the new additions are Cy Young winning pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine and former AL MVP Frank Thomas.
Maddux is as close as one could get to being a sure thing winning four consecutive NL Cy Young Awards from 1992-1995. The right hander also won 355 games, notching 3371 career strike outs...
The induction ceremony for the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., next July 28 could have a real Atlanta Braves flavor to it.
Former Braves pitchers Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine, each a 300-game winner, head a ballot stacked with superstar newcomers that will be studied by eligible members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America for the next month. The...
2007 TOPPS FINEST TOM GLAVINE
This shot of Tom Glavine wielding lumber got me thinking about the batting history of Mets pitchers. Here are some random hits and misses…
FEELS LIKE THE FIRST TIME
The first triple by a Mets pitcher was recorded by Bob L. “Don’t Call Me Bob G.” Miller on June 12, 1962. It came in the 6th inning of a 3-2 loss to Ken Johnson and the Colt .45s...
Well, we made it. We’re here. If you missed the first three installments, you can peep them here, here and here. Today, we wrap things up with pitchers who amassed between 60 and 69 WAR, and pitchers at 70 WAR and above.
Has Tom Glavine ever shown emotion?
The Atlanta Braves were known throughout their 14-year division championship run as going about their business on the field with a tight-lipped, button-down, corporate approach. Rarely did Braves players show emotion, particularly by leaders of the team.
John Smoltz, Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, Chipper Jones, Fred McGriff… those players went...
ATLANTA With the voting results of the 2013 Hall of Fame class in mind, Braves legend Tom Glavine has made it clear over the past few months that he is not 100 percent certain he will be a first-ballot player in Cooperstown.
Due to a variety of arguments and counterarguments, the baseball writers kept many of the game's most recognizable stars -- from Craig Biggio to Barry...
Tom Glavine not in the hall? Hard to imagine. Still, the 300 game winner spoke on SiriusXM and questioned his ability to earn enshrinement while appearing on the Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.
Glavine expressed disappointment that Craig Biggio was not elected to the hall. Perhaps Glavine sees some familiarities between himself and Biggio. Both played either their entire...
Historic milestones on this date. August 5, 1979, Willie Mays is inducted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Mays slugged 660 homers, batted .302, and collected 3,283 hits in his 22-year career. Known for his all-around play, Mays won 12 Gold Glove Awards for his defense in center field. Former National League outfielder Hack Wilson and executive...
I have found a lot of Tam Glavine cards in my collection, which is odd because I wasn’t even a big fan of his. Anyway:
The card comes from the Topps Total series, which was really budget series of cards. They covered every player in the league, sometimes two on the same card and were on a cheaper cardboard that drove the price of the card way down. I enjoy how Glavine is in a...

A Reds fan friend of mine had an extra ticket to Tuesday night's game. Did I want it? Um, yes. Luckily, a couple of Twitter friends (@ATL_Mouseketeer & @Twhyla) wanted to get there earlier than he could and watched BP with me. They loved my usher friends and we swapped entertaining stories, and they told me about their plan to get autographed baseballs...
