About Frank Thomas:
Born May 27, 1968 in Columbus, Ga. Thomas grew up playing both baseball and football, but he got his official start in baseball at Auburn University in 1987 when he hit a .359 in his freshman season. He made MVP in his junior season of 1989, and left school that summer when he was taken with the 7th overall pick by the White Sox. One year later, he made his big-league debut hitting .330 with 31 RBI in 60 games. He would stay ensconced as the White Sox’s first baseman and designated hitter for the next 15 years and quickly earned the name “The Big Hurt” for the damage he inflicted on opposing pitchers.
Throughout his career, he cemented his place in history. No other man has strung together seven straight seasons of 20-plus homers, 100 RBI, 100 walks and a .300 average.
