Photo of the Day: Frank Thomas holding Babe Ruth's bat

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Newly elected Hall of Famer Frank Thomas is walking around the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, on Monday. Chuck Garfien of Comcast Chicago is posting some pictures of the Big Hurt in the shrine to his Twitter account, but one in particular stood out for me.

Quite the historical connection. The man holding the bat hit 521 career homers and the man who once used said bat hit 714.

Interesting nugget that can serve as a trivia question: Only four players in MLB history hit more home runs and had more walks than Thomas. Babe Ruth was one of them. Can you name the other three?

Hint 1: Ted Williams isn't one, as he had more walks but tied Thomas with 521 homers.

Hint 2: Two of the three retired within the past decade and the other is a legendary Yankees center fielder.
