Frank Thomas slaps Reebok with lawsuit

Former MLB slugger Frank Thomas is not too happy about Reebok using his signature "Big Hurt" trademark without his permission.

Thomas gave the go ahead to the shoe and apparel company from 1995 to 1998 to use his "Big Hurt" trademark on various products. But Thomas claims no such permission was given when Reebok decided to resurrect the "Big Hurt" brand for a retro campaign in 2013.

Now, the future Hall of Famer is wanting a judge to prohibit Reebok from selling any more "Big Hurt" shoes effective immediately. Thomas also wants an unspecified amount of damages including any profits Reebook owes him for shoe sales.
