    By xa1
  • CLEVELAND — When Jim Thome first started pointing his bat toward the pitcher, he never imagined that subtle movement would one day become immortalized.The Indians announced Saturday that they will unveil a statue of Thome at Progressive Field on Aug. 2. Cleveland's career leader in home runs will be forever honored with the statue, which depicts him standing in the batter's box and directing his bat toward the mound.

Thome never could have imagined such a tribute, and is humbled by the salute."As a player, I don't even want to say you dream of that," said Thome, who retired in 2012 with 612 career homers. "When it happens, when the opportunity comes about, it's humbling. It's just a wonderful thing. My family is just ecstatic about it." One of Cleveland's most popular players, Thome hit 337 homers with the Indians. He broke in with the club as a slender third baseman in 1991 and developed into one of baseball's most feared hitters.Early in his career, Cleveland minor league hitting coach Charlie Manuel, who went on to manage Philadelphia to a World Series title, suggested to Thome that he should point his bat at the pitcher to loosen him up before hitting.Manuel got the idea after watching Robert Redford's character Roy Hobbs in the film "The Natural.""Charlie had seen a clip of Roy Hobbs pointing the bat," Thome said. "When I got in the box, I[......]
