Greg Maddux had a career that went on for 23 seasons and it was spread among the Atlanta Braves, Chicago Cubs, San Diego Padres, and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He finished eighth on the all-time wins list with a record of 355-227 and a 3.16 ERA.

Maddux also has a record 18 Gold Gloves, was an eight-time All-Star, and won four consecutive Cy Young Awards in the mid-nineties.

Tom Glavine played with Greg Maddux for a long time during his 22-year career. Glavine was a 10-time All-Star, two-time Cy Young Award winner, and had a career record of 305-203.
