So this Hall Of Fame trifecta for the Braves took a slightly unexpected turn, at least for Braves fans, today.

Greg Maddux announced today that he will NOT have a Braves logo on his Hall Of Fame plaque.

We’ll pause why you scream “WTH?”

And we’re back.

Ok, when asked about it, Maddux had this to say:

“My wife Kathy and I grew up in baseball in Chicago, and then we had just an amazing experience in Atlanta with the Braves. It’s impossible for me to choose one of those teams for my Hall of Fame plaque, as the fans of both clubs in each of those cities were so wonderful.”

So… feel any better about this?

I don’t.

I know the man played for Atlanta and Chicago, but HE WILL ALWAYS BE A BRAVE to most people in baseball. Right?
