MACON, Ga. (AP) - Just in time for his entry into the Hall of Fame, Frank Thomas is moving up to the broadcasting big leagues.

Thomas will join Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine as players inducted into the Hall of Fame this summer. He said Saturday he completing details on an agreement to work this season as a studio baseball analyst for Fox Sports 1, based in Los Angeles.

After working the past three seasons for Comcast in Chicago, Thomas said his new job is "a call to the big leagues."

Thomas says his year has been a whirlwind. On Saturday, the Columbus native was inducted into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.

He says he has no sympathy for those excluded from baseball's Hall because they took shortcuts with performance-enhancing drugs.
