Maddux, Glavine, Thomas to HOF
First Published Jan 08 2014 11:43 pm • Last Updated Mar 24 2014 11:32 pm

MLB • Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected into baseball’s Hall of Fame on their first ballot appearances Wednesday, when Craig Biggio fell just two votes short. Maddux and Glavine will join their former Atlanta Braves manager, Bobby Cox, at the July 27 induction along with Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, also elected last month by the expansion-era committee. But Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and other stars whose accomplishments were muddied by accusations of steroids use lost even more ground, dropping below 40 percent in an election where 75 percent is needed. Thomas said the living members among the 306 Hall of Famers don’t want those with sullied reputations. > C2
