Thomas, Glavine and Maddux get the call to the hall

NEW YORK (AP) -- Baseball's Hall of Fame will be inducting three ex-players this summer as Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas have been elected by the baseball writers.

For his Hall of Fame career Maddux received 97.2 percent of the votes while Tom Glavine, a Maddux teammate for 10 years with Atlanta, received 91.9 percent.

Maddux and Glavine are the first pair of 300-game winners elected in the same year since 1973

Thomas is the first player who to be elected after being a DH for much of his career.

Once again players tainted by the steroid era failed to make the cut. The group includes Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmeiro (pahl-MAYR'-oh), Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire, who all saw their support drop.

The trio will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 27 along with managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, elected last month by the expansion-era committee.
