Frank was eventually moved from first base because his throwing was a liability. He suffered an arm / shoulder injury his freshman year at Auburn playing football (he was a tight end) and it affected his motion and ability to get the ball across the diamond to 3rd base.

I have also been told (don't know if this is true or not) but Frank was embarrassed by this. He may have actually requested the move although publicly he was opposed to it.
