About a week or two ago I wrote to Frank Joseph Thomas (baseball player from the 1950's-1960's). Someone on this website wrote that he was having surgery and I just wanted to wish him the best. He has been a great signer over the years. Today I received a note from him, thanking him for my letter. He wrote that he was in the hospital, and that he was doing physical therapy, and that he knew this would be a long process to get back to normal. At the end of his letter he signed it "Frank Thomas- The Original One" (which made me laugh). I was surprised to get a thank you note from him because I know this is a hard time for him, if you could please pray for him to have a quick recovery, he is a great man.

I sent a get well note too, not expecting a reply and didnt include a sase. Let's all hope he heals well and continues to be a great friend to the TTM community.

Thank you for writing Mr. Thomas. As I had mentioned, he and I have been corresponding back and forth for several years and I had the chance to take in a Pirates' game with him a few years ago. He is a great man who is very grateful for the letters and the interaction with fans. Your kindness has made my day. Thank you again.

Yes, it was you that mentioned that he was having the surgery. I could not remember who had posted it. In the letter he wrote "Thank you" about 5 times. He really did sound appreciative. Thank you for letting us know about this.
