The Big Hurt comes to Grandstanding! We welcome in Frank Thomas, Hall of Famer and one of the greatest hitters of all time. The former White Sox slugger is now an analyst for Fox Sports, and he joins us to talk about this postseason and his own remarkable career. Which players and teams does he see as the difference-makers this season? How did he deal with the pressure of carrying teams and the disappointment of falling short in the postseason? What does he think needs to be done to increase the participation of African-American youngsters in baseball?
This was a fun interview, and we think you’ll enjoy it. Catch Frank and the rest of the Fox Sports team covering the postseason starting Oct. 8 and running right through the World Series.
