Josh Hamilton broke the goose egg he’d been carrying around in the home run column this season. He hit a two run blast against the Detroit Tigers this afternoon. Unfortunately, the Rangers lost the game 6-4.
Here’s Hamilton on his home run trot. I think the shin pad is new this year.
Also, check out Hamilton’s entry in Bad Wax’s list of Definitive Rookies. My favorite of his 1999 RCs is the Topps Traded.
