The Braves have announced that former Braves pitcher Tim Hudson and long time announcer Joe Simpson will be inducted into the Braves Hall of Fame on January 27th.

Tim enjoyed a 17 year career in the majors in which 9 of them were with the Braves. From 2005 until 2013 Tim accumulated a .611 winning percentage (113-72), 3.56 ERA, and 1.242 WHIP good enough for 21.6 WAR.

Joining him will be Joe Simpson who is entering his 27th season as a Braves broadcaster.
