Greg Maddux

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux was a Padres starting pitcher for the 2007 and 2008 seasons. He was known for his ability to hit any spot over the plate with pinpoint accuracy and little arm movement. Maddux would get batters out with his guile as opposed to his power. He was considered one of the most intelligent players in game and earned the nickname "The Professor". Maddux could predict each pitcher's next throw and what the batter would do, from the dugout. He was known for taking lots of players' money playing golf after Spring Training games.
