Thomas Michael Glavine (born March 25, 1966) is an American retired professional baseball player. A pitcher, Glavine played in Major League Baseball for the Atlanta Braves (1987-2002, 2008), and New York Mets (2003-2007). He was the MVP of the 1995 World Series as the Braves beat the Cleveland Indians.

On January 8, 2014, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame, in his first year of eligibility receiving 91.9% of the votes cast.[1]
