“Thome at the Plate,” The Whipkey Three

When Jim Thome arrived in Minnesota in 2010, Twins fans were understandably excited.  One fan, Matt Whipkey from Omaha, Nebraska, was so thrilled to have Thome on the team, he decided to write a rock tribute for the slugger.  Unfortunately for Twins fans, Thome’s stint with the team didn’t last terribly long, though he at least gave them a reason to cheer while his time there lasted.
