Hollywood Hamilton

Sat., June 23, 2012

Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton and his wife, Katie, confirmed Friday they have agreed to the creation of a feature film about his life. In a statement released before the Rangers’ game against Colorado, the Hamiltons said they were approached by actor/director Casey Affleck and Thunder Road Pictures. Tampa Bay selected Hamilton with the No. 1 overall pick in 1999 before his career was knocked off track by drug and alcohol abuse. Hamilton made it to the majors in 2007 with Cincinnati and was traded to Texas before 2008. He won the 2010 A.L. MVP and has helped the Rangers make consecutive World Series appearances. - AP
