The 2006 season saw him in the position of Assistant Club House Manager to the Pulaski Blue Jays where he worked with the players and still keeps in contact with some of them.
Last summer without a minor league team to work with Thomas got another view of Calfee Park. He split his time between announcing games and working the scoreboard and sounds for local teams.
This season he will be working with the coaches, players, umpires, and bat boys of the Pulaski Mariners in their daily schedules and during the games.  When the Pulaski Mariners take to the road, Thomas will be traveling with the team to assist the trainer and coaches.

 Thomas is currently a student at King College in Bristol, Tennessee where he is majoring in Sports Management and this fall he will begin classes to become an athletic trainer. He is coming off a rewarding season with the King Tornado baseball team lead by Coach Mark Conkin.
 Thomas split his time between being the varsity bullpen catcher and the starting junior varsity catcher. He started in six of the seven JV games and saw action early in the 7th game. He had a .450 batting average, a .625 OBP with 7 singles and 2 doubles,  4 RBI and crossed the plate to score 8 times.  The JV finished their season 3-3-1.
In Appalachian Athletic Conference play the Varsity Tornadoes were slated in the preseason to finish fifth. They were able to improve on that and tied for second in regular season play with NAIA nationally ranked #14 Union College.  They went on to finish fourth in their Conference tournament and were knocked out of the NAIA Regional XII tournament in a close  11-10 game by the NAIA Tennessee Wesleyan Bulldogs, ranked ninth nationally.
