Greg Maddux inducted in baseball Hall of Fame

COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. (AP) Greg Maddux, who won 355 games over a 23-year major league career, has been inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame.

Nicknamed ''Mad Dog,'' Maddux had stints with the Braves, Cubs, Padres and Dodgers and won four straight Cy Young Awards, leading the NL in innings each season.

Known for his pinpoint control, Maddux walked just 999 in 5,008 1-3 innings and ranks 10th in strikeouts with 3,371. He also was a sharp fielder, capturing 18 Gold Gloves, and was an All-Star eight times.

Maddux and fellow inductee Tom Glavine were mainstays of the Braves staff, helping Atlanta win 14 division titles in a row starting in the 1990s.
