Cooperstown (WBNG BINGHAMTON) Manager Bobby Cox and pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux are synonymous with mid-90s baseball.

In a lot of ways, they are synonymous with each other.

Between 1991 and 1998, Glavine and Maddux won a combined six Cy Young awards.
Is it any wonder all 3 are going in the Hall together? They don't think so, and they spoke about what that will be like Sunday.

"On a personal level, to have those two guys here, it's a big deal," said Glavine, who also spent time with the Mets during his big league career.

"It's a big deal for me, knowing that I spent so much time with those guys and knowing what they meant to me as a player and what they meant to my career."

"It's been 10 years since I played in Atlanta, so you kind of lose a little bit of touch with those guys and it's nice to reconnect with them," Maddux said. "Having a chance to come up here with Bobby and get orientated and all that, it was nice to sit down and talk to him more as a friend than my manager. That was pretty cool."
