Following the retirement of his uniform No. 35 earlier today, the Chicago White Sox announced that a life-sized sculpture of franchise legend Frank Thomas will be unveiled on the outfield concourse next season.
Thomas becomes the eighth White Sox great immortalized in bronze at the ballpark. Sculptures of club founder Charles A. Comiskey and Cuban great Orestes “Minnie” Minoso were unveiled in 2004. Carlton Fisk’s sculpture was installed in 2005, while the famous double-play duo of Luis Aparicio and Nellie Fox was honored with sculptures in 2006. In 2007, a sculpture of White Sox pitching star Bill Pierce was unveiled on the concourse near centerfield, and Harold Baines received the honor in 2008.
