ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Greg Maddux is enjoying his part-time role in baseball these days.
The newly elected member in baseball's Hall of Fame said Thursday the "best perk" about his role as special assistant with the Texas Rangers is being able to spend time with his family and still get his baseball fix.
Some of the Rangers' top pitching prospects were in the room, along with his brother Mike, the team's pitching coach, as Greg Maddux talked about his excitement of being elected earlier this month.
The four-time NL Cy Young winner also talked about remaining approachable and sharing his experiences with the young pitchers. Maddux, who has been with the Rangers for two years, will be at spring training next month.
