Greg Maddux entering Hall of Fame without a cap logo

In the 90s, the Atlanta Braves clearly dominated the regular season. They dominated every aspect of it: pitching, hitting, and fielding. One of the main centerpieces of the Braves 20 years ago was Greg Maddux. Maddux, as you know, was recently selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame class of 2014, alongside his counterpart Tom Glavine and the Big Hurt, Frank Thomas.

Frank Thomas was clearly a vital part of the White Sox and most of his career went to helping the White Sox succeed and reach the highest level that they could reach. With his two MVP Awards, it’s just common sense to put a White Sox logo on the cap that will be on his plaque in Cooperstown.

And with Mad Dog contributing to the success of the 90s, you would think he would have a Braves logo on his cap. Well… he doesn’t, and this has caused quite a stir on social media among Braves fans.

The selection of what logo goes on the plaque is not solely up to the player. The hall chooses it, but they usually go with the player’s preference, so only time will only tell if Maddux wanted a Braves logo on his plaque or not.

But whether or not there is or isn’t a logo, it is still a huge honor for any baseball player to be selected to the Hall of Fame. Only a select few will ever see their face on a plaque beside some of the greats at their position. With that, it is just extra special that this year, two players from the 90s who dominated the decade with the Atlanta Braves can hold their head high and be proud of their career accomplishments.
