Pitcher, club move past release to reunite after retirement
The right thing, the suitable thing, the good thing happened between Tom Glavine and the Atlanta Braves.
Glavine, so long identified with this franchise and its long years of success, will return to the Braves as a special assistant to the president, Braves president John Schuerholz announced Thursday.
What Schuerholz described was a multifaceted position for Glavine, which makes all kinds of sense, since Glavine is an intelligent, directed and ultimately competent fellow. The Braves ought to get as much mileage out of Glavine as they can, and it appears that they will. In his new post, he will assist Schuerholz on various baseball and business projects, work on special assignments for general manager Frank Wren and manager Bobby Cox, as well as serve as an occasional guest on the Braves radio and television broadcasts.
