He is best known for playing for the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves. He was the first pitcher in major league history to win the Cy Young Award for four consecutive years (1992-1995), a feat matched only by one other pitcher (Randy Johnson). During those four seasons, Maddux had a 75-29 record with a 1.98 earned run average (ERA), while allowing less than one runner per inning. Maddux is the only pitcher in MLB history to win at least 15 games for 17 straight seasons. In addition, he holds the record for most Gold Gloves with eighteen. A superb control pitcher, Maddux won more games during the 1990s than any other pitcher and is 8th on the all-time career wins list with 355. Since the start of the post-1920 live-ball era, only Warren Spahn (363) recorded more career wins than Maddux. He is one of only 10 pitchers ever to achieve both 300 wins and 3,000 strikeouts. As of 2013 he works in the Texas Rangers' front office as the special assistant to the general manager. On January 8, 2014, it was announced that he was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, in his first year of eligibility.) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greg_Maddux
