Josh Hamilton had a few comments to make about his old Texas Ranger’s fans that were not very friendly. Hamilton who recently signed with the Los Angeles Angels in a five year $125 million deal was quoted saying, ”Texas, especially Dallas, has always been a football town,” Hamilton told Dallas’ CBS 11. “They’re supportive, but they also got a little spoiled at the same time, pretty quickly. There are true baseball fans in Texas, but it’s not a true baseball town.”
Josh later added, ”I told them on camera—I said there are true baseball fans and then there are others who are not,” Hamilton told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. “The true baseball fans won’t boo when I come back; the ones who are not true fans will.”
Rangers manager Ron Washington chose to shrug off Hamilton’s comments.
“There were 3.5 million fans that came through the turnstiles. That answers it right there; but I have no comment on Josh’s comment,” Washington told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Clearly, Hamilton has some problems with Texas after his signing to the Angel’s a lot of issues started to surface. Something I will discuss tonight on Breanna Nicole Radio at 8:00pm EST.
