ATLANTA – FOX Sports South will televise 3 Aces: Glavine, Maddux and Smoltz, an in-depth interview with Atlanta Braves legends and Hall of Famers Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux and John Smoltz. The thirty-minute special will debut Friday, August 25, at 6:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports South, prior to the Braves game against the Colorado Rockies, and with an encore at 11:00 p.m. ET.
Glavine, Maddux and Smoltz sat down with FOX Sports’ Paul Byrd at the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., to reminisce about their time with the Braves. Topics of discussion include internal competition among the three pitchers, winning with consistency, proudest career moments, and being inducted into the Hall of Fame.
Glavine on competing with Maddux and Smoltz:
“I think we realized, in order for our team to do what we thought we were capable of doing, we were a big part of it and we had a big responsibility. So nobody wanted to be that weak link in the chain that was having the bad year or the off-year.”
Maddux on proudest accomplishment with Braves:
“Winning. I think, overall, just winning. We won every year. You know, we didn’t always get the ultimate prize, but we won every year.”
Smoltz on being supportive while also remaining competitive with Glavine and Maddux:
“Learning from (Glavine) and (Maddux) about when you don’t have your best stuff – it’s okay, learn how to fake it, learn how to be stoic and learn how to make your starts. So it’s something all of us collectively could be proud of.”
