Baseball Slugger Josh Hamilton Gets Right With God

10 Aug

Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton has suffered through a two-month slump, batting barely over .200 since June 1.There was rampant speculation as to what was ailing Hamilton, the five-time All Star, the 2010 American League Most Valuable Player. Some thought marital problems. Some others thought a relapse into the drug and alcohol abuse with which the 31-year-old struggled in a past life.But the Rangers basher ended the speculation yesterday, releasing a statement in which he attributed his recent problems at the plate to his disobedience to God. More specifically, his failure to quit chewing tobacco.Hamilton’s statement elicited predictable derision from those who do not share his Christian faith.Like the snarky writer for Dallas Magazine who mocked, “So God is punishing Hamilton for using tobacco, and that’s why this year he’s been swinging at more pitches outside the strike zone than anyone else in the majors?”
