Literary birthday greetings: The Big Hurt

May 27, 2011

Frank Thomas turns 42 today. He’s one of the few sluggers of the recent vintage who have not been (overly) tainted with the steroids suspicion brush. He was a two-time MVP and five-time All-Star in his 19-year in which he averaged 36 homers and 119 RBI per season.

There have been several books written about The Big Hurt (6’5″, 240, 521 career home runs), most of which are geared towards younger readers.
