Welcome to Andrea's Tom Glavine Page!
"All I do is win. But if you aske people to list the top five pitchers in baseball, I wouldn't be on four of the five lists...But you're going to look up at the end of the game and, more often than not, I'm going to beat you." Tom Glavine, who says he doesn't mind the spotlight shining on teammate Greg Maddux but wouldn't mind some of his own accomplishments being recognized. (USA Today, July 1998)
Although I'm a fan of all the Atlanta Braves pitchers, I have to admit that Tom Glavine is my favorite. I think what I like so much about him is that he's always fighting -- he will never give in to a hitter. I also admire him for all of the charity work he does. Oh yeah, and he's pretty good looking, too :-) I know he hasn't exactly had the greatest season so far, but he's had a couple of bad breaks and I think he'll look like a Cy Young winner again soon.
Here is his personal info, one of my favirite pictures of Tom, and some Glavine links that I visit regularly.
