COOPERSTOWN, N.Y. — In 1991, Frank Thomas set foot in the Baseball Hall of Fame building for the very first time.
Sammy Sosa has gone Biblical, comparing himself to the Prodigal Son who will one day return to Wrigley Field and be reunited with all his fans.
They told him the phone call would come between 11:45 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. A call Frank Thomas has been dreaming about for as long as he can remember.
But it wasn't coming.
Frank Thomas is a Hall of Famer, and will be the first inductee to wear a White Sox cap since Nellie Fox.
