Jim Thome played in the major leagues from 1991-2012, earning five All-Star nods and a trip to the Hall of Fame for his trouble. While Thome is mainly known for his time with the Cleveland Indians, he later played for several other teams in the latter half of his career, including the Chicago White Sox.

His 612 home runs rank eighth on Major League Baseball's all-time list, and his 1,747 walks rank seventh.Only six players have totaled at least 1,700 walks and 1,699 RBI: Babe Ruth, Mel Ott, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Barry Bonds and Thome.

By 1992, Thome had made it to the big leagues. Two years later, he was Cleveland's every day third baseman.

Thome was part of a loaded Indians lineup that featured young stars like Kenny Lofton, Carlos Baerga, Albert Belle and Manny Ramirez. He hit .314 in 1995 with 25 homers and 73 RBI, helping the Indians reach their first World Series in 41 years. Over the next four seasons, the World Series title remained elusive for Cleveland, but Thome blossomed into one of the game,s best power/on-base threats.

In both the 1998 ALCS vs. New York and the 1999 ALDS vs. Boston, Thome crushed four home runs.

Following a 52-home run campaign in 2002 that saw him lead the AL in slugging percentage with a mark of .677, Thome signed a six-year free agent contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. He hit 47 home runs in 2003 and 42 more in 2004, but missed most of the 2005 season with an elbow injury.

With Ryan Howard primed to take over first base, the Phillies traded Thome to the White Sox following the 2005 season. In Chicago, Thome hit 134 home runs over four seasons, then became a "hired bat" during his final years - playing for the Dodgers, Twins and Orioles as well as second stints with the Indians and Phillies.

When he retired, Thome had totaled 1,583 runs scored, 612 home runs and 1,699 RBI. Only seven other players in big league history - Bonds, Ruth, Williams, Manny Ramirez, Mickey Mantle, Frank Thomas and Jimmie Foxx - have at least 500 home runs, a .400 on-base percentage and a .550 slugging average. He was named to five All-Star Games and finished in the Top 10 of his league's Most Valuable Player balloting four times.

His 13 walk-off home runs are the most in history.

Thome was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2018.
