Despite not being blessed with a blazing fastball, “The Professor” is widely hailed as one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history. Relying on exceptional command, composure and guile to outwit hitters, Greg holds a number of Major League Baseball (MLB) records. He is the only pitcher in history to end his career with 300 wins and 3,000 strikeouts while offering up fewer than 1,000 walks. Other feats include being the first to earn four straight Cy Young Awards (1992-95) as the league’s best pitcher and the only hurler to achieve at least 15 wins for 17 straight seasons. Greg was also an exceptional fielder, setting the mark with 18 Gold Glove awards.

A member of the World Champion 1995 Atlanta Braves and eight-time All-Star, he ranks eighth on the all-time wins list with 355. Greg led the National League in wins three times (1992, ’94, ’95) and earned run average four (1993-95, ’98). His No. 31 jersey has been retired by both the Braves and Chicago Cubs. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014, his first year of eligibility.
