Even people who don't follow baseball might spend a portion of the day talking about the Texas Ranger's center fielder Josh Hamilton. What he did last night in the Home Run Derby was nothing short of amazing. In short, he hit 28 homers in one round. He didn't win the trophy, Twins first baseman Justin Morneau did, but he did win the hearts of anyone who was watching. He also won the respect of all of the other players who know just how improbable his night was.
This is a power display that transcends any other derby that I've ever seen. Moreover, his story of redemption from drug abuse that has played out as the feel good story of the year has just gotten a whole new and wonderful entry. Here is a man who is finally using his God given talents and is putting on a spectacular show while he is doing it for all of us to enjoy.
