Frank Thomas Draws Greatest Walk In Baseball History

OAKLAND—An exhausted Frank Thomas trotted to first base Wednesday night after a historic 257-pitch at-bat that included three balls, 251 consecutive dropped foul tips, and eight relief pitchers during a fifth-inning walk in a 7-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners..

My, oh my, if there's any justice in the world, I'll never live to see a walk like that again."
