One of the Atlanta Braves' greatest pitchers was honored last Friday with the retirement of his uniform number and induction into the team's Hall of Fame.

With hundreds cheering in a downtown Atlanta hotel ballroom, the Braves inducted Greg Maddux. He becomes the 21st member of the Braves Hall of Fame, which includes former players, executives and broadcasters.

GPB's Edgar Treiguts attended the event last Friday, and sends this audio postcard.
