Frank Thomas was born May 27, 1968 in Columbus, Georgia. Thomas played college baseball and football for the Auburn Tigers of Auburn University, Alabama.

Frank Thomas became one of baseball’s biggest stars in the ’90s. Nicknamed “The Big Hurt” by broadcaster Ken Harrelson in the 1992 season, Thomas was known for his menacing home run power. He routinely swung a rusted piece of rebar that he reportedly found during a renovation project in Old Comiskey Park in the on-deck circle. Throughout his career, Thomas was a guy who could motor on the base paths. Despite just 23 lifetime steals, he was one of the most terrifying runners in the game when he got up to full steam. He outweighed many of the keystone players by 100 pounds, so he was usually given a wide berth.

He played in the majors for the Chicago White Sox (1990–2005), Oakland Athletics (2006, 2008) and the Toronto Blue Jays (2007–2008). He is a five-time All-Star (1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997), four-time Silver Slugger Award winner (1991, 1993, 1994, 2000) and two-time AL MVP (1993, 1994). Thomas won the AL batting title in 1997 and was named AL Comeback Player of the Year in 2000. His uniform number (35) was retired by the White Sox. He retired from playing professional baseball February 12, 2010 and went on to become a commentator for Comcast SportsNet White Sox broadcasts. In May 2011, he was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.

Frank Thomas was inducted into Baseball Hall of Fame on July 27, 2014 as a member of the Chicago White Sox.
