What do you think of when you hear the name Jim Thome?

Majestic home runs hit into the picnic plaza at Jacobs Field (now Progressive Field), the high socks, the stance, the bat-point.

Some will point to Thome's controversial departure in free agency to the Phillies. Others will remember his triumphant return to Cleveland in 2011.

Chances are, you'll now equate Jim Thome's name to the Hall of Fame after he was elected to Cooperstown on Wednesday.

Jim Donovan discussed his memories of Jim Thome during Wednesday's Donovan Live. The one image that will always stick out most to Jimmy is Thome catching the pop-up fly from third base on September 8, 1995 for the final out as the Tribe clinched the AL Central Division title and their first playoff appearance since 1954.

Of course you can't talk about Jim Thome and not think of the sound of the bat when he crushed a home run. Remember this prolific bomb hit in Game 5 of the 1995 World Series against the Braves?

But there was another aspect of Thome that made him a first-ballot Hall of Famer, his character. Jimmy is such a class individual that always treated fans and media with respect. His locker was always for writers and broadcasters to come talk with him.

Jim Donovan referred to Thome as a "great caretaker of the game, a gentleman, and a great Indian."

Those traits, along with his 612 home runs, have sent James Howard Thome into baseball immortality.
