  1. Greg Maddux Denied Unanimous Induction to Baseball Hall of Fame

    Greg Maddux, a four-time National League Cy Young Winner and 18-time Golden Glove Winner, and former teammate Tom Glavin, both 300-game winners, are also first-ballot Hall of Fame inductees. The final tallies were announced this afternoon. Frank Thomas joins them as well. Maddux’s bid to become the first unanimous inductee was thwarted by Ken Gurnick, who left the pitcher off his ballot because he played during the period of endemic performance-enhancing drug use. Other candidates from that era, such as Barry Bonds, will likely be locked out.
