Hawk calls him "Big Frank Thomas" in the call because the moniker "Big Hurt" had not made its debut yet. That happened at the Robin Ventura Game, 7/31/91.

This is a pretty aggressive stance to take on the subject of organ music.

I agree. Who would think the head of marketing would make a choice tailored to the masses. Thank god other ball parks did not do the exact same thing

Notwithstanding this Hijack, very happy for Frank Thomas. Was my childhood hero, awesome day!

You're right. Brooks destroyed the fan experience at Comiskey. There were no other reasons why fans stayed at home last year......

Way to go, Frank! Happy Birthday to me!

Tough break for Biggio though. That would have made it even sweeter for me.

Bye-bye Raffie. Took him longer than it should have to fall off, but I'm glad it finally happened.

This conversation is for such a different time/place, but I'll bite -- Brooks would be good at his job if he took over an already well oiled machine. The White Sox are anything but a well oiled machine and could use a guy with some creative ideas.

Anyway, back to topic -- CONGRATS BIG HURT!!!!!!!!!!!
