Congratulations Jim Thome


This mosaic by artist Jonathan Mandell hangs at Citizen's Bank Park to commemorate the Philadelphia Phillies career of one of the finest ballplayers of his generation.

I wrote a lot about him earlier this year when the Hall of Fame voting took place.  I could probably go on gushing about his accomplishments and the joy he has brought to me as a Phillies fan, and as a baseball fan in general, but I'll keep it brief.  Congratulations, Mr. Thome, on your induction to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
