Glavine's Baseball Career: Glavine is the most accomplished NHL draft pick when it comes to career performance in another professional sport besides hockey. A left-handed pitcher, Glavine broke into Major League Baseball with the Atlanta Braves, who had drafted him in 1984, just two days after he was taken in the NHL draft. Between 1984 and his big-league debut in 1987, Glavine came up through Atlanta's minor-league system. In 1984, he pitched for the Gulf Coast League Braves in Bradenton, Fla. (Rookie League), going 2-3 with a 3.34 ERA. The next year, Glavine moved up to the Class A South Atlantic League and went 9-6 for Sumter. He then jumped to Double-A in 1986, and had an 11-6 record for Atlanta's Southern League affiliate in Greenville, S.C. By then end of the 1986 season, he had been promoted to Atlanta's top farm team, the Richmond Braves of the International League. Glavine went 1-5 with a 5.62 ERA for Richmond in 1986, but came back the following year to earn a regular spot in the Richmond starting rotation. Then, during the 1987 season, he was briefly promoted to the big leagues at age 21. During his short stint with Atlanta, he went 2-4 with a 5.54 ERA for a Braves team that went only 69-92 and finished fifth in its division. By 1988, Glavine was ready for full-time duty in the Atlanta rotation, and he responded with a 7-17 record for a last-place Braves team that won only 54 games. But the next year, Glavine truly began to come into his own. He went 14-8 with a 3.68 ERA for the 1989 Braves team that still finished last in its division. He slipped back to 10-12 the following year, as the Braves maintained their grip on the NL West cellar. Everything changed for Glavine in 1991, however. He turned in a remarkable 20-11 record with a 2.55 ERA, pitched in the All-Star Game, won the National League Cy Young Award, led all NL pitchers with a .230 batting average and helped lead the Braves to the World Series, where they lost in seven games to the Minnesota Twins. It was the first of five World Series he would pitch in for the Braves. In 1991, at age 25, he had established himself as a bona fide baseball star, and his hockey-playing days were a distant memory. Over the next 15 years, Glavine added to his baseball resume in impressive fashion. He won  20 games in 1992 and a career-high 22 in 1993. In 1995, he was part of Atlanta's World Series championship team, and in 1998 he went 20-6 with a 2.47 ERA to earn his second Cy Young Award. Two years later, in 2000, he won 20 games for the fifth time in his career. An eight-time All-Star, Glavine left the Braves after the 2002 season and signed a 3-year, $35 million contract with the New York Mets. He remained a Mets starter into the 2005 season, entering the season at age 39 with 262 career victories and 12 career playoff wins.
Personal: Full name is Thomas Michael Glavine. ... Older brother of Major League Baseball player Mike Glavine.
