Author Mark Twain once said “the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated,” when rumors had spread that he had met his demise.

On Friday morning, Fox News apparently took that to heart when it came to Baseball Hall of Famer Frank Thomas.

During the show, The Faulkner Focus, the network ran a video to honor those prominent figures who have passed away this year and showed “The Big Hurt” during his career to go along with a clip of his Hall of Fame induction.

But Thomas is not dead, and Fox News meant to pay tribute to former MLB outfielder Frank Thomas, a three-time MLB All-Star who was born in 1929 and died on January 16 at the age of 93.

The now 55-year-old Thomas, who was a Fox baseball analyst from 2014 until this past spring, responded to his “death” on social media.

“Ladies and Gentlemen I’m very sorry my ex employer Fox would be this irresponsible on National TV this morning. Yes I’m alive and doing well,” Thomas wrote. “This blows my mind also.

Thomas can still be seen these days peddling Nugenix supplements on your television.

Fox News later issued a correction acknowledging the mistake.

“We misidentified Frank Thomas, the three-time All-Star for the Pittsburgh Pirates,” anchor Julie Banderas said. “The Frank Thomas we showed you unfortunately was also a former pro baseball. He is very much alive.”
