Greg Maddux pitching at Atlanta’s Turner Field, 1998 – Sully Baseball Daily Photo at Noon for February 24, 2018


IMG_2465By 1998, Greg Maddux had already established himself as one of the great pitchers of all time.

Yeah I said it. You can take your Grover Cleveland Alexanders and your Don Drysdales and put them aside. Maddux was putting up eye popping numbers at the height of the steroid era.

I saw him pitch at my only trip to the Ted. I went to Turner Field in April of 1998 and saw Maddux and Curt Schilling lock antlers in an amazingly tight game.

Maddux did not get the win that day, but I knew I was watching greatness.
