Georgians Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame
Three baseball players were selected for induction into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame for 2014, and all three had Georgia connections. Two were former pitchers for the Atlanta Braves - Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux. The third was Columbus, Georgia native Frank Thomas, who played most of his career with the Chicago White Sox. Glavine and Maddux will join their former manager - Bobby Cox - on the podium for induction into the Hall of Fame.
