Taking place in Cooperstown, NY, six baseball players/managers will be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The official induction ceremony will take place Sunday, July 27th.
Greg Maddux will throw the ceremonial first pitch before the Texas Rangers season opener. His first pitch March 31 will be caught by his brother, Texas pitching coach Mike Maddux.
Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame on Wednesday, while Craig Biggio fell two votes short and tainted stars of the Steroids Era remained far behind.
The Rangers said that Greg Maddux will become a special assistant to the general manager, the same role he held with the Cubs for two seasons.
