Frank Thomas gets statue
The Chicago White Sox have unveiled a statue in the outfield concourse to honor former slugger Frank Thomas.
Thomas, who is the White Sox career leader in nearly every offensive category, played 16 seasons for Chicago before wrapping up his career with Oakland and Toronto. He was a two-time MVP with the White Sox.
He was a career .301 hitter with 521 home runs, 1,704 RBI and 1,494 runs scored over his 19 seasons. He broke in with the White Sox in 1990 and had an injury-shortened final season with them in 2005 when they won the World Series.
His No. 35 was retired in August of last year. He joins Charles Comiskey, Minnie Minoso, Carlton Fisk, Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox, Billy Pierce and Harold Baines with statutes at U.S. Cellular Field.
