Greg Maddux’s Hall of Fame plaque to have no logo
Greg Maddux will not have a logo on his cap when he is inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame this summer, the Hall announced Thursday.
Maddux pitched for four teams in his 23-year career, starting with the Chicago Cubs. Following the 1992 season, Maddux signed with the Atlanta Braves, where he pitched for 11 seasons.
He also had stints with the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, as well as a second tour with the Cubs, at the end of his career. Eight of Maddux’s 10 best seasons by Wins Above Replacement came in Atlanta, as well as three of his four Cy Young awards.
Maddux is not the only member of the 2014 class to enter the Hall without a logo on his cap. Manager Tony La Russa, who won World Series with the Oakland Athletics and St. Louis Cardinals, will also have a blank plaque.
Of the other inductees, Bobby Cox and Tom Glavine will wear Braves logos, Frank Thomas will wear a White Sox logo, and Joe Torre will wear a Yankees logo.
