Along with Greg Maddux and John Smoltz, Tom Glavine was part of a devastating Hall of Fame trio that dominated starting pitching in the 1990’s. 

It wasn’t all wine and roses for Glavine when he started as his first few seasons were a mixed bag but in 1991 he would break out with a league leading 20 Wins with a 2.55 ERA and a Cy Young Award win.  Glavine would prove this wasn’t a fluke as he would lead the NL in Wins the next two seasons and was a second place and third place finish in Cy Young voting and in 1995 he anchored the Braves to a World Series win where he won the World Series MVP.  The second half of the 90’s proved to be just as good as he would have two more 20 Win seasons (both league leading) and he would win his second Cy Young in 1998, while finishing second in 2000. 

As an Atlanta Brave, Glavine won 244 Games with 2,091 Strikeouts and had eight All Star Game appearances.  He was also a very good hitter as shown by his multiple Silver Slugger Awards. Glavine would leave Atlanta to sign with the Mets but he would return to Atlanta for his final season in 2008.

Glavine would enter the Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot in 2014.
