Josh Hamilton Relapses
Josh Hamilton has once again fallen to his inner demons, hopefully he can once again bounce back. Former first round pick had troubles in years past with drugs and alcohol forcing him to drop out of the game of baseball for some time. Against all odds, while in the darkest corner of his life, he fought back and got into the league. He is now a prominent player and an incredible talent. Josh Hamilton has shown the nation how strong he is to overcome his drug and alcohol addiction of the past. Now the question remains, will he be able to do that again? Earlier this week Hamilton turned himself into MLB officials, saying that he had relapsed on alcohol and cocaine. Hamilton has had recent injuries that have led to lack of success and pain. The silver lining in this story is that he turned himself in and has realized his problems. As a fan of not only his abilities, but his character, I can only hope that Hamilton can fight past his problems once again and get back onto the baseball field. For a guy that has gone through hell and back, you can only hope for the best. It is still unknown what actions the league will take on behalf of Hamilton's breaking of the drug policy.
