Atlanta Braves great and current broadcaster John Smoltz will have his No. 29 retired on-field in a pregame ceremony on June 8, the same day he'll also be inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame during a luncheon.
The Braves have a 7:35 p.m. ET contest with the Blue Jays scheduled that day at Turner Field. Smoltz's uniform will be the ninth retired by the Braves, and he joins contemporaries Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux, as well as his former manager, Bobby Cox.
"John has contributed so much to Atlanta Braves history," Braves president John Schuerholz said in a news release. "Inducting him into our Hall of Fame and making sure no one else will ever wear his No. 29 are the most meaningful and significant ways we can honor John."
