Thome for Thome

Thome for Thome

It’s not likely that you’ll get face-time with one of the 50 greatest batters of your lifetime.  It’s even less likely that you’ll have recently been allowed to write abook about such a subject and get to show that batter his chapter in your book.  And it’s way way less likely that you’ll compare that batter to Pedro Cerrano as you hand him a copy of said book.  But when BSG meets Jim Thome, we’d expect nothing less.

BSG @ ESPN

BSG @ ESPN

To say BSG was “at” ESPN today, might be something of an understatement.  He was all over it for book release day.  The good folks in Bristol, CT took care of our boy all day long as he stopped by First Take, ESPNEWS, SportsNation, and SportsCenter with John Kruk.  These are still airing in various fashions on the Worldwide Leader, so check their schedule now.  We’ve captured the day in image form on the facebook fanpage, and you can checkout the online SportsNation chat here.  And there are still SportsCenter broadcasts to come.  Whew, what a day.
