ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have honored Tom Glavine by
retiring his uniform number before their game against the San
Francisco Giants.
Glavine's No. 47 was placed beside former teammate Greg Maddux's
No. 31 on the Turner Field facade in left field during a 15-minute
pregame ceremony. Maddux's number was retired last year.
Before the presentation, delayed more than an hour by rain,
Glavine sat with his adopted 1-year-old son, Kienan, on his lap at
a platform near the mound at Turner Field.
Glavine, a 10-time All-Star and two-time Cy Young winner, was
inducted into the the Braves Hall of Fame earlier Friday during a
luncheon downtown.
