You Can Put it on The Board! - Yes-s!!! ...


Frank ''Big Hurt'' Thomas hit 'em long & hit 'em far and if he had hit all of his home runs with the Chicago White Sox, Ken ''Hawk'' Harrelson could have said, ''you can put it on the board! - yes!!!'' 521 times. The Big Hurt hit 521 home runs & drove in 1704 runs. He had a lifetime .301 BA, .419 OBP, .554 SLG, and 1494 RS. In 1994, Thomas had a .494 OBP & .729 SLG. He is one of only 9 players to hit over 500 home runs with a .300 lifetime batting average & is 4th all time with 121 sacrifice flies.

Frank Edward Thomas, 6' 5'' 275 lbs., is a two time MVP and has four Silver Slugger awards & a batting title to his credit. He led the league in walks four times; a credit to his batting eye & his plate discipline.

The Big Hurt has a bronze statue at U.S. Cellular Field & his # 35 jersey has been retired by the White Sox.

Ken Harrelson never had to say, ''stretch ... stretch'' with this HOF ballplayer. Instead it was his pleasure to call out: ''You can put it on the board! Yes!!!

Until next time, so long everybody ...
