Thome passes Killebrew, gets special message
I know I am late to the party on this one, but kudos to Thome for his dual homers (and a freakin triple if you can believe it!) on July 3, 2010. With those homers, he took solo place of the 10th spot in all-time home runs, passing Harmon Killebrew. After the feat, the Twins HOFer relayed a special video message to Thome and the fans. In the video, Killebrew told Thome he was proud and what an upstanding guy Thome is, and what he means to the sport. I can't even imagine what Jim Thome was thinking as he watched that.
I don't know how many years Thome has left in him, but over his career, he has steadily, surely, strongly been soldifying his place in the baseball Hall of Fame.
