  1. Maddux, Glavine and Thomas Elected to Baseball Hall of Fame

    Three former Major League Baseball stars are headed for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Former Atlanta Braves pitcher Greg Maddux, fellow teammate and pitcher Tom Glavine, and former Chicago White Sox slugger Frank Thomas were elected in their first year on the ballot. Former Houston Astros standout Craig Biggio fell just short of the 75 percent of the vote required for enshrinement. Former players believed to have used performance-enhancing drugs were again left off the majority of ballots.
