AUDIO Jim Thome Talks HOF Nod

One of the Tribe's most popular and productive players will be enshrined in Cooperstown in July, and had a chance to reflect on his time in Cleveland with the media and fans.

Jim Thome was back in Cleveland to answer questions from the media one week after he recieved his call to the Hall.

He talked about the pride he felt in being a first-ballot Hall of Famer and how he accomplished that feat with the help of his teammates and coaching staff.

"The man gets the honor, but it's so much more than about just the individual honor," he said.


 Thome and Bob Feller are the only two players in Indians history to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame on the first ballot.

Thome retired with 612 home runs and five All-Star appearances in 22 seasons in the Major Leagues.

One of Jim's mentors, former Tribe hitting coach and manager Charlie Manuel spoke with him before he received the call to Cooperstown. Thome recalled how Charlie helped build up not only his confidence, but the other players around him.

"Charlie's greatest gift is that he could build anybody up to be great, at least make them think they're great, and that's what I love most about him."

Thome is one of six members in this year's Hall of Fame Class, joining Trevor Hoffman, Chipper Jones, Vladamir Guererro, along with Jack Morris and Alan Trammell, who were elected this past December.

Thome had a sit-down interview with the radio voice of the Indians, Tom Hamilton before he spoke with the media. That interview can be seen on Sports Time Ohio at a later time.

The event was held at the Westfield Insurance Studio inside the Idea Center in Cleveland's Playhouse Square.

He says he does not know who will present him for enshrinement in July, but that he will speak with his wife Andrea, who was in the audience, and decide that at a later time.

In addition, Jim says he will wear the Block C at his induction in light of the news surrounding Chief Wahoo's removal earlier in the week.
