Tom Glavine
Recently, Major League Baseball celebrated two historic milestones in New York Mets pitcher Tom Glavine capturing his 300th career win and San Francisco Giants left fielder Barry Bonds becoming the game’s new home run king.

Phoenix Coyotes Head Coach Wayne Gretzky, who is a friend of both Glavine and Bonds, pre-recorded a congratulatory message for both players, which were played in-game at their respective ballparks.

Glavine, who played both hockey and baseball as a youth, was drafted by Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round (69th overall) of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft; ahead of future Hall of Famers Brett Hull and Luc Robitaille.  On Sunday, August 5, Glavine and the New York Mets defeated the Chicago Cubs, making him only the 23rd pitcher in MLB history to reach the 300-win plateau.
Barry Bonds

Bonds became the most prolific home run hitter in the history of baseball on Tuesday, August 7, when he hit his 756th career home run to move past Hank Aaron and into first place on the all-time list.
