Ode on Frank Thomas

Frank Thomas wasn’t as popular as Ken Griffey Junior, but he was favorite athlete in my youth. He didn’t juice and was a power threat for at least 30 home runs. He also was a consistent .300 hitter for his career.

My favorite team was my home state Twins, but the south-sider was my favorite MLB player. I named my first black and white cat after him. The cat bore a bit of pudge to resemble his major league counterpart and was just as gentle.
