Frank Thomas is returning to the Chicago White Sox as a special consultant to business operations.
Thomas will work closely with vice president of sales and marketing, Brooks Boyer.
He had previously left his ambassador role in the White Sox when he became a national television analyst for Fox and Fox Sports 1. Thomas will continue to work with Fox, but realized he had the time and passion to rejoin the organization.
"I'm really happy to be back here and to come back with a role to the team that, a place that I spent my entire life it seems like, and to be a help anywhere I possibly can," Thomas said. "It's a good role for me because I'm back and forth still with the TV stuff. So when I'm not in L.A., I'll be here at the ballpark helping out and doing things.
"I'm happy to be back with the team. I always want to be around this team. You guys knew that and I never wanted to leave this place. So many memories, so many years. Just come back now and watch what's going on, my ex-roommate is the manager. It's a good thing."
