COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - Tom Glavine, that rare athlete drafted by two professional leagues in different sports, has been inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Glavine was enshrined Sunday at the Hall in Cooperstown.
Glavine won 305 games and two Cy Young Awards, and posted five seasons with 20 or more victories. Only three left-handers have more wins - Warren Spahn, Steve Carlton and Eddie Plank.
Drafted by the Braves in 1984, Glavine also was taken by the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL draft that year but chose to focus on baseball.
Glavine was on the mound when the Braves won Game 6 to clinch the 1995 World Series and give the city of Atlanta its lone major sports title.
