Comments From Frank Thomas on Becoming a White Sox Team Ambassador
“I played in between these lines with everything I had,” said Frank Thomas, “and it’s a great, great honor to be out on that wall with these guys.
“I had more ups than I had downs. That’s part of having a long, successful career. I’m proud of it, wouldn’t change it. This is a great day today to be named a team ambassador. I really care about this team.”
“This is a great moment and I’m going to enjoy it. I’m going to help the team in any way I can and whatever they need to throw on me, I’ll be there.”
“This is the team I follow day-in and day-out. I put into too many countless hours. I know these guys, I know the coaches, I played with the coaches. We’re still family, we’ve always been family.”
“I spent 16 long years here and unfortunately, departures are never nice. But eventually I figured I would be back here in some capacity, it just takes time. Things have worked out.”
“I’m just happy to be a part of this because in my heart, I feel like I’ve earned this.”
