Ya I remember Dick Allen used to get the "Jesus Christ Superstar" theme music played when he walked up to hit. In fact, first athlete to get the moniker "Superstar", nowaday that is a throwaway adjective. But Frank Thomas certainly accomplished more in his time.

Would have been nice if they were similar age, they could have traded off
at 1st and DH. ( I can only dream. )
