Exclusive: The Glavines receive Aflac’s Duckprints Award

I received an email, which read (in part): A month ago, former Atlanta Braves pitcher Tom Glavine was inducted into the baseball Hall of Fame. On Sept. 8, Glavine will enter a hall of fame of an entirely different sort – one that honors people who have made a difference in the fight against childhood cancer.

What The New York Mets Need To Accomplish In 2014

The New York Mets are on their way to missing the playoffs…again. In fact the last time the Mets were in the postseason (2006) Tom Glavine (recently inducted to the Baseball Hall Of Fame) was still pitching, Obama wouldn’t be the president of the United States for two more years, and we all thought Oliver Perez could be a promising starter for the Mets. So yea, it has been a...

Tom Glavine Still Red Sox Fan, Initially ‘Disappointed’ Boston Didn’t Draft Him

Tom Glavine Should Not be in the Hall of Fame

Many of you may, or may not agree with me, but I believe that while, Frank Thomas and Greg Maddux should be elected to the hall of fame of baseball, Tom Glavine should not. Do not get me wrong, he had a spectacular career, 300 wins is a great achievement. It is just that, when I think of a hall of fame player, I think dominance, as in, dominated the sport for a period during their...

Chopcast: Glavine talks Hall of Fame candidacy, pitching

ATLANTA With the voting results of the 2013 Hall of Fame class in mind, Braves legend Tom Glavine has made it clear over the past few months that he is not 100 percent certain he will be a first-ballot player in Cooperstown.
