John Smoltz is the former pitcher for the Atlanta Braves. He was predominantly known as a starter and is former Cy Young Award winner. He is the only pitcher in Major League history to top both 200 wins and 150 saves. On April 22, 2008 when he struck out Felipe Lopez in the third inning against the Washington Nationals, Smoltz became the 16th member of the 3,000 strikeout club.

Tom Glavine is a retired left-handed pitcher. With 164 victories during the 1990s, Glavine was the second winningest pitcher in the National League, second only to teammate Greg Maddux’s 176. He was a five-time 20-game winner and two-time Cy Young Award winner, and one of only 24 pitchers (and just 6 left-handers) in major league history to earn 300 career wins.
