Balls of Fire


I'm not a big Texas Ranger fan..I just enjoy baseball..but, is it me or are there no hot Cardinal players? jeez..think I'd rather hit the Texas locker room!

Josh may not know his story.  He was the first overall pick in the 1999 Major League Baseball Draft by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. He was considered a blue chip prospect until injuries and a drug addiction derailed his career in 2001.  But, in a breakout 2008 season, Hamilton was named to the American League All Star team, and made the All-Star team the next two seasons as well. He also participated in the Home Run Derby, where he hit a record 28 home runs in the opening round and finished with 35 home runs, which was second-most all-time in derby history. Hamilton won the AL batting title in 2010. On October 22, 2010, Hamilton was selected as MVP of the 2010 ALCS. On November 23, 2010, Hamilton was named the 2010 AL MVP, earning 22 of 28 first-place votes.

This post-season, Hamilton has been hampered by a groin injury, but is valiantly playing at 80% to protect the Texas lineup. In last nights game, he hit a sacrifice fly to tie up the World Series against the Cardinals.

Anyone want to help Josh with that injury?
