He was drafted by Cleveland in 1989 MLB draft and began playing for the minor leagues. During his time with the Cleveland Indians he was named the most popular athlete in the history of Cleveland sports.

He is known for his homerun hits, especially having the longest hit in the history of Cleveland baseball. In 2003 Thome began playing for the Philadelphia Phillies after signing a six year contract at $85 million, but was traded to the Chicago White Sox in 2005. He became their designated hitter. In 2009 Thome was traded to the L.A. Dodgers, but the only position he was given is that of pinch hitter. In 2010 he began playing for the Minnesota Twins and on August 15th he hit his two career home runs which brought the total up to 600. In 2011 he was traded back to the Cleveland Indians and later that year he signed to play for the Philadelphia Phillies once again and in 2012 was traded back to the Baltimore Orioles. He is in seventh place on the all-time list for hitters with 610 career home runs. Jim Thome was born in Peoria, Illinois in 1970 and attended Limestone Community High School in Bartonville, Illinois. He was also a student at Illinois Central College. He and his wife, Andrea still reside in Peoria, Illinois with their two children, daughter Lila Grace, and son Landon.
James Howard "Jim" Thome ( /'to?mi/; born August 27, 1970 in Peoria, Illinois) is an American professional baseball player. He plays in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the Baltimore Orioles. He has also played for the Cleveland Indians, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Minnesota Twins
Thome is a five-time MLB All-Star. He has won the Silver Slugger Award, Comeback Player of the Year Award, Roberto Clemente Award, Babe Ruth Home Run Award, and Lou Gehrig Memorial Award. He became the eighth MLB player to hit 600 home runs.
Thome was originally drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 13th round of the 1989 Major League Baseball Draft. While in the minors, he got into a fight with future Major League star Chipper Jones. Thome and Jones would later become good friends. Thome made his Major League debut on September 4, 1991 as a third baseman against the Minnesota Twins. He was 2 for 4 in that game, with his first hit coming off pitcher Tom Edens in the fourth inning. He hit his first career home run on October 4 against New York Yankees pitcher Steve Farr.
Originally a third baseman, he was shifted to first base when the Indians traded for Matt Williams in 1997.
At the plate, Thome hit 25 home runs and 73 runs batted in with a .314 batting average in 1995. Thome then hit 38 home runs in 1996 and 40 in 1997. Thome soon became a prolific home run hitter, once hitting a 511-foot (156 m) shot at Cleveland's Jacobs Field. It is the longest home run ever recorded at a Cleveland ballpark. He hit 49 home runs with the Indians in 2001, followed by a career-high 52 homers in 2002.
Thome has been nicknamed "The Thomenator," "The Pride of Peoria," and more recently as a member of the White Sox "Mr. Incredible"." Wildly beloved by Indians fans, a Plain Dealer fan poll in 2003 named Thome the most popular athlete in Cleveland sports history. Some of Thome's trademarks are his high socks that he helped make popular again in the mid-'90s
