John Smoltz Wears a Wig During Baseball Hall of Fame Induction [VIDEO]
Former Atlanta Braves pitcher John Smoltz celebrated his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame this past weekend, where he earned a spot alongside former teammates Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux.
Smoltz, who still holds the Braves' record for most wins, strikeouts, and saves in a season, had some fun with the other two pitchers that helped make up one of baseball's best pitching rotations of all-time. As a sort of payback for things Glavine and Maddux said during their inductions last year, Smoltz pulled out a wig from under the podium and told some stories from his younger years.
"Glav(ine), Maddux, back when I had hair, we had the time of our lives," Smoltz said.
"....So what I want to talk about is the time we had both playing golf and pitching."
The trio helped lead Atlanta to divisional titles in all but two years during the 1990s. Those three pitchers claimed six Cy Young awards during the decade as well.
Smoltz joined Pedro Martinez, Craig Biggio, and Randy Johnson as members of the 2015 Hall of Fame class.
