Right on. I was hoping it would happen on Sat, because then I could be there for it. But I'm glad I saw it on TV, and here's hoping that Frank gets one more closer to 500 tomorrow. :gulp:

This is why Frank sucks. He could have hit the homer any other day this week, but instead he hits it when I'm not home. What a bunch of crap.

After Carlos hit that bomb, I knew Frank would come up and hit number 400. Congrats Frank!!!

That pic is now on my desktop! Congrats to Big Frank. I wish I hadn't missed it. (Work again, but that's a good thing considering they once again are above .500 when I am at work. :D: )

Congrats Frank! I was very lucky to be at the game and witness the event! Here's to many more HRs to come! :gulp:

That was a blast to witness. One more biscuit for the big man's breakfast, and that ball might have been mine. I was about 20 feet from it and also from Hangar18. my jersey shows up in some of those TV shots, or at least the bottom of it. The guy in front of me was very visible.

It was cool that the people who got the ball gave it back and Frank sent out an autographed bat for them to take home.

Heck, even the post game show was pretty cool...

Way to go, Frank. You're the greatest hitter this city has ever seen...

That would make an awesome sign. Too bad we don't have another Cubs series, in order to hold up that sign and also in order to beat them again.

Not that this is a surprise to anyone, but if you missed it, you can see it on the official site (whitesox.com), but you need to get the RealOne Player upgrade (although it is free). Small price to pay, IMO, to see a piece of franchise history (even if it is a tad late. :smile: )

Congratulations to the kid who made the catch on Carlos Lee's HR. The kid was seated two rows behind DrCrawdad's crew.

Awesome catch kid, whomever you are.

Yeah....as soon as he hit it.....I put my 400 sign up IMMEDIATELY........that ball was in my row......about 20 feet
to my lef!!!! (and just out of reach of Voodoo, wow was he close to it...) the kid dropped it....then there was a scrum....
and next thing ....the ball rolls down 4 rows to this chick and
she gets the ball. oh well. The sox took the ball and gave
her a Thomas Signed Bat. Only minutes later...my phone
rang off the hook, everyone saw my 400 sign on TV, on the news, on SportsCenter, also on ESPN News......awesome being a
celebrity for 30 minutes heh heh

I'll be at the game tonight. We need to give Frank a HUGE standing ovation for his first at-bat. Saturday fireworks, so hopefully 30,000+ at the ballpark.

Hangar, I saw you about 5 times on various broadcasts last night. I missed the actual home run live, so I was flipping through the channels v. quickly trying to catch as much of the highlights as I could.

Well done!

I missed Frank's shot, but congrats to the Big Hurt. My favorite player and the best hitter the Sox have ever had!

Here's to you Frank! :gulp:

It should work. If not, try the "Community" tab on the menu at the top of this page & select "WSI Photo Gallery". Then go to "Sox Wallpapers".
