White Sox honor 'Big Hurt' with statue

July 31, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Thomas became the latest Sox player to be honored with a statue at U.S. Cellular Field. The statue is on the left field concourse.

A career 301 hitter with 521 home runs, Thomas played 16 seasons with the Sox and is their career leader in almost every offensive category.

The first 20,000 fans that arrived at Sunday's game against the Boston Red Sox received a replica sculpture.

Thomas joins Carlton Fisk, Charles Comiskey and Harold Baines among others with statues at the Cell.
