Cooperstown will welcome three of the game’s greats during this year’s induction ceremonies on Sunday as Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, and Tom Glavine are inducted as the 2014 MLB Hall of Fame class. The trio of players will all enter the Hall of Fame in their first year of eligibility, deservedly so after having remarkable careers.

Collectively the group represents some of the best the game has ever seen. Two 300-game winning pitchers, who collectively won five consecutive NL Cy Young Awards in the early 1990s. Plus a slugger with more than 500 career home runs who’s .419 OBP ranks only with the sports’ best hitters of all time.

Maddux, Thomas, and Glavine have reached the pinnacle of their respective careers and will share in the event along with three of the game’s best leaders in Tony LaRussa, Joe Torre, and Bobby Cox.
