Josh Hamilton Week: Day 4

For Day 1, click here

Josh Hamilton's favorite part of baseball actually doesn't occur during the game. He loves batting practice. "This was what I used to live for - not the games or the money or anything else. I lived for the feeling I got when I
stepped into the cage and everyone stopped what they were doing to watch and react. I lived to stand in that cage and pretend not to hear what they were saying when the ball rocketed off my bat and carried unimaginable distances."

Hamilton got out of writing an English final paper in high school by signing 12 baseballs for his teacher.

The first house Hamilton bought was actually previously owned by Jose Canseco.

Most people know this, but growing up, Hamilton was the perfect kid. He was polite and courteous. He accepted people from all groups and never judged. He never smoked, drank or did any sort of illegal substance. What many people don't know is that he didn't even have a girlfriend in high school. (He met his wife, Kate Hamilton, in high school)

Josh Hamilton Quote of the Day: "A lot of times, you see a twelve-year-old who is physically advanced, and eventually the other kids catch up to them. The strong kid matures earlier and is stronger, but he tops out. Things even out by the time he reaches high school. But in Josh's case, nobody ever caught up with him" -Johnny Narron Sr. on Josh Hamilton.

It's nice to see a guy who threw it all away to drugs, get a second chance. Josh is from our home state, and we remember when a local guy said hey, join my independent league team. Two years later Hamilton was back in the bigs. I just that they are slamming my Yankees.

Go Yankees!
