Best player in baseball is an easy guy to cheer for

For most baseball fans, Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers came into view when he blew away first-round records in the 2008 All Star Game Homerun Derby.  It was then that most of us also learned his story of drug addiction and recovery and his commitment to Jesus Christ. Check out this interview with Josh earlier this year.   It’s a dramatic story; it’s good to see Josh doing well in MLB this year.  In fact, many believe he is the best player in the major leagues this year.  Good guy to cheer for.
