Cheyenne Scalpers (1997-2001)
Los Angeles Riots (2002-2006)
Inducted into Hall of Fame: 2012
One of the elite pitchers of his era, Greg Maddux was a commanding presence on the mound. During his ten year Weaver League career, Maddux finished in the top ten in strikeouts in the Inferno League eight times. At the time of his retirement he was the all-time Inferno League leader in strikeouts, and his 171 career victories were second only to New York's Randy Johnson in Weaver League history.
Maddux spent the first half of his Weaver League career with the Cheyeene Scalpers. He and teammate Pete Schourek combined to give the Scalpers rotation a formidable one-two punch. However the team always hovered around .500 and after an injury plagued 2001 season Maddux was shipped off to the Los Angeles Riots.
The acquisition of Maddux helped transform the Riots into a perennial contender in the Inferno League Lockwood Division. He was a key member of the team as it went on to make three Weaver Series appearances in five years, winning two championships. He won 20+ games in four of the five seasons he was with the team, and was the MVP of the 2006 Weaver Series versus Rio de Janerio, going 2-1 with a 1.48 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 24.1 innings. His Game Seven victory in the 2006 Weaver Series was his finest moment, outdueling Rio ace Addie Joss and holding on to give the Riots the Weaver Cup with a 2-1 victory. Maddux decided to go out on top, announcing his retirement during the Riots championship celebration.
Maddux came back to the Weaver League in 2010 as pitching coach for the Vancouver Mounties. Two years later he was inducted as the tenth member of the Weaverball Hall of Fame.
