Maddux’s Hall of Fame plaque will have no logo

By Paul Sullivan

It was seen as a given that Greg Maddux would go into the Hall of Fame wearing the cap of the Atlanta Braves, the team for which he spent the most time and had the most success.

But the Hall announced Thursday that Maddux’s plaque will have no logo, a small but telling victory for the Cubs, who let the four-time Cy Young Award winner leave as a free agent in his prime.

Of the six new inductees into the Hall, only Maddux and Tony La Russa will go in without a logo on their plaques.
