ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas have been elected to baseball's Hall of Fame.

The results were announced Wednesday. All three players were in their first year of eligibility.

Maddux and Glavine are former Atlanta Braves pitchers.

The trio will be inducted in Cooperstown on July 27 along with managers Bobby Cox, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa, elected last month by the expansion-era committee.

The total number of former Boston/Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves players, managers and executives elected to the Hall of Fame now stands at 50.

This marks the first time since the 1946 Hall of Fame class that two starting pitchers who pitched at least one whole season in the same rotation were elected to the Hall of Fame.
