What would America's pastime be without beer? It was only a matter of time before a baseball legend would slap his nickname on some tall boys, and that legend is former White Sox slugger Frank "Big Hurt" Thomas.

Check out this hilarious Big Hurt rap featuring the Chicago playwright duo Q Brothers.
