Thomas, Maddux Make Hall On First Ballots

Baseball fans on both sides of Chicago and throughout Illinois have reason to boast today as Greg Maddux and Frank Thomas have been elected to the Hall of Fame.  Thomas' consistency as a hitter produced a lifetime .301 batting average, a .419 on-base percentage and 521 home runs during a 19-year career, 16 of them with the White Sox.  Greg Maddux' pinpoint accuracy and pitching savvy resulted in 355 wins, a 3.16 lifetime ERA and four Cy Young Awards in a 21-year career with the Cubs, the Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers.  Thomas was named on 84-percent of the baseball writers' ballots;  Maddux was listed by more than 97-percent of the writers.  Maddux' former Braves teammate Tom Glavine was also elected today.
