How will baseball fans remember Frank Thomas? Will they remember him as a great hitter ? A selfish player who only thought of himself? A great player who finally turned into a team player towards the end of his career? I think it will be a combination of all three in some form.

personally I'll remember him as the greatest hitter in White Sox History that stuck with the White Sox when everyone told him that if he wanted a ring he has to go elswhere. Frank was Mr. White Sox. I sure hope we didn't see his last game in a White Sox uniform but I fear we did.

Sadly, "A great hitter who was selfish until he needed to rely on his teammates in the end."

Frank Thomas will be remembered as the cornerstone of the Chicago White Sox franchise and as one of the greatest right-handed hitters in baseball history, because that's exactly what he is. Period.

The media will have its own "memories" of Frank which will have virtually nothing to do with how Sox fans will remember him.

Since I do not live in chicago anymore but in San Jose I was curious how other Sox fans felt about him since his last days with the team are here. I think Frank Thomas is the greatest hitter of my generation and deserves to be in the Hall of Fame on the first ballot after he retires. I have to sadly say most baseball fans that I know that do not live in Chicago or fans of other teams do not think he is a Hall of Famer yet with his current numbers. I have to say a lot of baseball fans that live outside of chicago have very negative feelings towards Frank but are happy he got his ring. In my eyes he is a Hall of Famer but he did have some strange years with his mood swings.

He will be remembered as the greatest legend in Sox history. His greatness will be past down from generation to generation. He is our Babe Ruth.

You summed it up correctly the greatest hitter in White Sox history. He also stayed with the Sox all these years despite this day in age of free agency.
