    Jim Thome proves age is just a # and that nice guys can win . Thome , the 13th round draft pick of the cleveland Indians -was told he was too small to play major league baseball-so he phoned his dad and swore he would duble the workout routine the Indians gave him -541 homeruns later he and the WS are headed to the next round .
