Maddux, Glavine, Thomas elected to Hall of Fame Published: January 8, 2014

The National Baseball Hall of Fame will welcome 1990s icons -- two pitchers and a legendary hitter -- into the hall in 2014.

One of the most majestic induction classes in the history of the National Baseball Hall of Fame was set on Wednesday with the announcement that Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas were elected by eligible writers of the Baseball Writers' Association of America, all of them by big margins.

Maddux and Glavine were teammates on the Atlanta Braves for much of their illustrious careers, winning the 1995 World Series, while Thomas was a career .301 hitter with 521 home runs and two MVP awards to his credit in a career predominantly spent with the Chicago White Sox.
