Biography

American baseball player, a pitcher for the Atlanta Braves. Maddux was originally signed by the Chicago Cubs on 6/04/1984 after being selected in the second round of the free-agent draft. He played with the Chicago organization for a total of nine years before being granted free agency on 10/26/1992. About a month and a half later, on 12/09/1992, Maddux was signed by the Atlanta Braves, where he has played for the past nine years.

Like many other players, he spent the first four years of his career playing for various minor league teams. In 1988, however, Maddux was called up to the majors and his career took off; his many honors and records are highly indicative of his career performance. For an amazing eight consecutive years, from 1990-1997, Maddux was awarded the Golden Glove Award. From 1992-1995, he was named the Cy Young Award winner a record four consecutive times. In addition, he was also named Pitcher of the Year for the same four consecutive years, from 1992-1995, by "The Sporting News." Maddux calls several records his own, including the records for most years leading the league in double plays by a pitcher and the career record for most years leading the league in assists by a pitcher. Not surprisingly, Maddux has been to the All Star Game six times, in 1988, 1992, 1994, 1995, 1996, and 1997. He also helped lead his team to the World Series in 1995 and 1996; Atlanta won the Series in the latter year.

Maddux is married to his wife, Kathy, and has two children, daughter Amanda Paige, born 12/09/1993, and son Chase Alan, born 4/17/1997. In his spare time, he enjoys playing both golf and Nintendo. Maddux also devotes a large portion of his time to the Maddux Foundation, which he and his wife head up. The organization is involved in several charitable activities, including donating Braves tickets to non-profit organizations.
