HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2016) - bBooth, Inc. (
Joining other distinguished members of bBooth's Advisory Board, "The Big Hurt" will spearhead the Company's sports business initiatives for its bNotifi 'push-to-screen' technology.
Mr. Thomas played for three American League (AL) teams from 1990 to 2008, most of which as an integral part of the Chicago White Sox. One of the most outstanding and recognized hitters of his era, he is the only player in major league history to maintain a .300 batting average for seven consecutive seasons (1991-1997), scoring at least 100 runs-batted-in (RBI's) every season. A perennial MVP candidate, during that period he batted .330, averaged 36 home runs and 118 RBI's per year. In 1993, he was named the AL's Most Valuable Player by unanimous vote when he became the first White Sox player to hit 40 home runs in a single season, leading his team to a division title. Later in his career he earned AL Comeback Player of the Year honors, as his contributions helped the White Sox finish with the AL's best record. In 2014, his first year of eligibility, Mr. Thomas was inducted into The National Baseball Hall of Fame, becoming the first Chicago White Sox player to achieve that distinction. The White Sox retired his jersey #35 in 2010.
"I am very excited to be part of the bBooth team. There are enormous opportunities and applications for the Company's bNotifi technology in the business of sports; from communications and marketing, to fan engagement," stated Mr. Thomas. "I'm thrilled to be at the forefront of technology that will bring fans closer to their favorite teams and players."
"Frank is a tremendous addition to our Advisory Board," stated Rory J. Cutaia, bBooth CEO. "His knowledge, accomplishments, and relationships, as well as the respect he commands throughout the world of sports, are invaluable assets as we add sports to our growing list of markets for our bNotifi technology. We are extremely fortunate to have him on our team."
