Retired Numbers: #31
This is an interesting one. Three guys are honored…one of them (Maddux) twice. Three teams are represented…one of them (the Cubs) twice (for Maddux and Jenkins). Interesting to me, at least.
Greg Maddux, Chicago Cubs
Greg Maddux, Atlanta Braves
If the Cy Young Award is ever renamed for another pitcher, Maddux has to be in the discussion. The 4-time winner of the trophy finished in the top 5 four other times and is 8th on the career wins list with 355 victories. Maddux will be eligible for the Hall of Fame in 2014, along with former teammate Tom Glavine.
Dave Winfield, San Diego Padres
Fergie Jenkins, Chicago Cubs
