ATLANTA (AP) - There were a lot of guys who threw harder than Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine.
No one knew more about pitching.
Mad Dog and Glav were stalwarts in the Atlanta Braves rotation, a potent 1-2 punch for an entire decade on a team that made the playoffs year after year. Now, they have a chance to come together again for the highest honor of their careers - membership in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Maddux and Glavine are both eligible for the first time, with the inductees to be announced Wednesday. They hope to join their former manager, Bobby Cox, who was picked for the Hall last month in a separate vote.
Cox says, "I've got my fingers crossed for both of them."
