CHICAGO –- The White Sox announced that, as expected, Frank Thomas will also get a statue on the outfield concourse at U.S. Cellular Field.

In a release sent out just after the start of Sunday’s game, the team said a life-size bronze sculpture of Thomas will be unveiled in 2011.

Thomas will become the eighth significant member of the franchise to get the bronze treatment, joining Charles A. Comiskey, Minnie Minoso, Carlton Fisk, Luis Aparicio, Nellie Fox, Bill Pierce and Harold Baines.

The sculpture will be created by Chicago-based artists Lou Cella and Oscar Leon of The Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany, which has crafted six of the other White Sox sculptures.

"I thought everything was going to be today, the statues and the number," Guillen said before thinking about it. "The statue will take like 10 years to make of Frank."
