Congrats

Congrats to Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux on their election into the Baseball Hall of Fame. They were a sight to behold when they were together with the Braves in the 1990s. They were both incredibly intelligent pitchers. I actually remember Maddux as much for his fielding ability. He was like a shortstop with some of his acrobatic catches. I got to watch both of them pitch live at Braves games more than once.

Chicago White Sox first baseball Frank Thomas also got elected. Growing up in National League country, I seldom got to watch Thomas play that much, though I did get to see him in a game in Chicago the last year he was with the White Sox. By that point he was playing injured and a shadow of his former self, but people still cheered when he came to the plate. He loved the South Side, and they loved him.

Congrats all...
