  • I have followed Tony Thomas for 2 yrs. I am a fan for about 60yrs and I never believed in a person so much than I do Tony. Speed (turns doubles into triples) Scores from 2nd on a single and is clutch. His glove is solid. He has good power to center and left. But most of all he is great with kids and players When they send these kids out on the field with players watch Tony. He kids arount and has the kids smiling. When he signs auto for fans he takes time with the fans. He is the MVP of the first half no dought.
