The last time the Chicago White Sox won the World Series, Frank Thomas was winding down a Hall of Fame career with the franchise.

An injury limited “The Big Hurt” to just 34 games that season, but he wears the ring proudly because he was the cornerstone of the organization that produced it.

A five-time All-Star, he is the only player in major league history to have seven consecutive seasons (1991–1997) with at least a .300 batting average, 100 runs batted in (RBI), 100 runs scored, 100 walks, and 20 home runs.

Thomas also won the AL batting title in 1997 with a .347 mark.
