Jim Thome will be the 2016 inductee to the Phillies Wall Of Fame, the team announced on Tuesday. Thome will be inducted on Friday, August 12 at Citizens Bank Park prior to the Phillies’ 7:05 p.m. game against the Colorado Rockies.
Thome hit 101 home runs with the Phillies, including his 400th on June 14, 2004. The year prior, Thome hit 47 home runs, tops in the National League.
Thome was selected into the Phillies Wall Of Fame by a fan vote on Phillies.com.
