#100 Tom Glavine

SKILL : noun
: the ability to do something that comes from training, experience, or practice

 Four-year member of the honor roll and the National Honor Society at Billerica Memorial High School, Massachusetts.

Drafted by both the Los Angeles Kings in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft (in the 4th round, 69th overall—two rounds ahead of future National Hockey League star Brett Hull and five rounds ahead of Luc Robitaille, both 2009 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees), and the Atlanta Braves Major League Baseball organization in the 2nd round of the 1984 amateur baseball draft.

That's impressive.

10× All-Star (1991–1993, 1996–1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2006)
World Series champion (1995)
2× NL Cy Young Award (1991, 1998)
World Series MVP (1995)
4× Silver Slugger Award (1991, 1995, 1996, 1998)
Atlanta Braves #47 retired
National Baseball Hall Of Fame (2014)

Even more impressive.
