To the left you see Josh Hamilton with Clay Council, of Cary, NC. Turns out a few years back, Josh said that if he ever made it to the Home Run Derby, he’d get Council to pitch to him.
“Throwing to him throughout the years, he’s always hit me so hard. I would tease him, ‘If you ever have a tryout or get to the Home Run Derby, you better let me throw because you wear me out.’ ” –Clay Council
“He’s done so much for so many kids and probably hasn’t got a lot of thank yous for it. This is a big thank you.” –Josh Hamilton
I’m really looking forward to the Derby tonight. Nothing personal against Mr. Council, but I hope Hamilton rocks him.
