Frank Thomas had his No. 35 retired by the White Sox on Sunday afternoon, and another honor will come to him next year:
The White Sox announced that, as expected, Frank Thomas will also get a statue on the outfield concourse at U.S. Cellular Field.
In a release sent out just after the start of Sunday’s game, the team said a life-size bronze sculpture of Thomas will be unveiled in 2011.
Thomas will become the eighth significant member of the franchise to get the bronze treatment, joining Charles A. Comiskey, Minnie Minoso, Carlton Fisk, Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox, Bill Pierce and Harold Baines.
