Monday night Josh Hamilton crushed 28 home runs in the first round of the Home Run Derby. It was such an incredible display that the rest of the competition was an after-thought.

Many people may not have heard of Josh Hamilton before Monday night. Ryan, at the Couch-Potato Radical, points out that Hamilton has come to grips with his past through finding faith in Christ. Ryan’s post links to an ESPN story that goes deeper into Josh Hamilton’s story.

I noticed last night that when Josh Hamilton was interviewed after his historic home run marathon, he was uncharacteristically humble and gracious – compared to many modern athletes.
