Maddux one of three new HOF members
Texas Rangers will be well represented at the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies this summer.
Not only will radio broadcaster Eric Nadel be inducted as the Ford Frick winner, but also Greg Maddux will be honored.
Maddux was one of three players voted into the Hall Wednesday, joining Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas.
Maddux didn’t play for the Rangers but is a special assistant to general manager Jon Daniels. He’s also the brother of pitching coach Mike Maddux.
"His accomplishments are well documented, and it’s an honor for us to work with one of the true greats," Texas general manger Jon Daniels said. "In addition, he has made an impression on all of us with his passion for and knowledge of the game, his willingness to share it with all, and his ability to keep things loose and have fun. His approachability and humility are rare, particularly for someone who has accomplished so much."
Greg Maddux won 355 games and four Cy Young Awards over his 23-year career. But for his older brother Mike their careers started in their backyard as kids.
"To see his career go from the backyard playing wiffle ball to the big leagues to 355 wins to the Hall of Fame is great," Mike Maddux said. "I couldn’t be happier for him."
