  1. Starting around 1992, Big Frank became one of my heroes along with Ken Griffey Jr.

    Guy was an offensive freak wasn’t he? They’ll never be another. What a menace at the plate.

  2. Mike Rosenbaum says:

    I’m in the same boat as you Clint. Both the Big Hurt and Junior were, and still are, my baseball heroes.

    Frank was an absolute OPS monster who totally brought baseball back to the South Side in Chicago. The dude is a legend and I’m thrilled the Sox honored him like that.

    I’m even more excited for 2014 when he will undoubtedly be inducted into the Hall of Fame on the first ballot.

    Oh yeah, that whole never being tied to steroids thing goes a long way in my book. Big Frank was one of the first advocates for testing and addressing the problem.

    Total class act.
