Ask a few baseball fans the names of the greatest pitchers in baseball history, and you’ll normally hear Greg Maddux name among the top ten or fifteen.
Relying on one of the best sinkerballs of all-time, Greg Maddux also used excellent arm speed and movement with fastballs and a straight changeup to baffle batters. His ability to throw strikes over the outer edge of the plate and was also be able to nip the inside of the plate helped him win well over 300 career games.
Greg Maddux was an amazing pitcher, one of the best ever. In retrospect, his career winning consistency stands out over most any other major league pitcher. On August 24, 2007 Greg Maddux became the first major league pitcher to win 10 games in 20 consecutive seasons, a streak started in 1988 with the Cubs. And, during this streak, only once did he win under 15 games – 13 in 2005. He broke Cy Young’s record of 19 straight seasons.
One day earlier, on August 25, 2007, Greg Maddux was voted by the media and a panel of retired players and managers as the best fielding pitcher of all-time.
Greg Maddux was one of the best pitchers to ever wear a baseball uniform, and certainly his winning attitude and consistency will define his Hall of Fame career.
