Category: #31 Jersey

The Peoria Chiefs officially retired the #31 jersey of former pitching great Greg Maddux in pre-game ceremonies at O’Brien Field. The 44 year-old Maddux rode in to the ballpark on a vintage fire truck accompanied by the “Chariots of Fire” theme song and a scoreboard video montage of his illustrious career. He then walked to home plate with Pete Vonachen where he was greeted by Peoria Mayor Jim Ardis, who proclaimed it as Greg Maddux Day in Peoria.
