There are certain milestones that when reached by a Major League Baseball player earn talk from the media about being an automatic ticket punch into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. For hitters it's usually 500 home runs or 3,000 hits. For relievers it's 500 saves. For starting pitchers, it's 300 wins.
Both Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux won 300 games in their Hall of Fame careers. Glavine earned his on August 5, 2007 against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field as a member of the New York Mets.

With all the emotions leading up to not only induction day, but the day he receive the phone call telling him he was elected to the Hall of Fame, Glavine said that he's glad he doesn't have to go through it all again next year.
