Braves fans watch Baseball Hall of Fame induction at Turner Field

ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Braves fans packed Turner Field before the Atlanta Braves versus the San Diego Padres game to watch Bobby Cox, Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux's induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Fans were able to watch the induction on a jumbotron inside the stadium.

Players Maddux and Glavine, slugger Frank Thomas and managers Joe Torre, Cox and Tony La Russa were all inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The Baseball Hall of Fame ceremony was held in Cooperstown, NY.

The Big Six were inducted in front of the third-biggest throng in history behind the Cal Ripken Jr. and Tony Gwynn induction of 2007 and the Robin Yount-George Brett-Nolan Ryan induction of 1999, according to MLB.com.

MLB.com said Commissioner Bud Selig read the inscriptions on the plaques of the six newcomers, who were joined by another 44 of the 66 living Hall of Famers on the big stage.

"Bobby Cox is the best manager ever and all the commentators compare Maddux and Glavine to the best pitchers ever," said Myrna Feleman, a longtime Braves fan.

Feleman said she and her husband have gone to nearly every Braves game since moving to Atlanta from Florida 15 years ago.

The Felemans joined hundreds of Braves fans like Brian and Jessica Whitney.

"Our daddy used to take us to the games when we were really little," said Brian Whitney.
