Future Baseball Hall of Famer Makes an Appearance In Myrtle Beach

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans will be welcoming future Hall of Famer and 300 game winner Tom Glavine to the pitcher's mound tonight as he makes a rehab start as he returns from injury and prepares to rejoin the Pelicans' big league parent club, the Atlanta Braves.
Glavine will mark the second appearance for the Pelicans by a National League all star pitcher this season after Mike Hampton made a start for Myrtle Beach in July. This however, will be the first appearance for the Pelicans by a sure fire baseball Hall of Famer, and a sell out crowd is expected to be in attendance to witness this historic occasion.
The Pelicans are celebrating their 10th year in Myrtle Beach and have had quite a season to celebrate the anniversary. Not only have they clinched a playoff berth by wrapping up the first half title, but they also hosted a spectacular all star game between the Carolina League and California League, which brought stars Vanna White, Pelicans investor Eddie George and the now notorious Roger Clemens among the record setting crowd.
As a sponsor of the Pelicans, we are proud to put our name behind such great family entertainment
