Tom Glavine ended his playing career in 2009, after breaking through as a rookie with the Atlanta Braves in the late 1980's. In between, the standout left-handed pitcher won 305 games, collected two Cy Young Awards, and was named the World Series MVP in 1995.

He left the Braves after the 2002 season as a free agent and joined the New York Mets. Some miscommunication during contract negotiations led to an uncomfortable parting with the team.

He would re-sign with the Braves in 2008, but hard feelings would surface again after his release by the club in 2009.

Fences mended, the Braves made Glavine its 22nd member of the team's Hall of Fame. They also retired his uniform number 47, only the 7th player in franchise history with that honor.

Glavine spoke with GPB's Edgar Treiguts.
