Josh Hamilton made his Major League debut on April 3, 2007. It took him eight years since he was drafted to accomplish this.
Unfortunately, drug addiction cost him several years of playing in the pros. In 2004, he was suspended by the MLB for failing
several drug tests. In 2004 through 2006, Hamilton did not play baseball as he made several attempts to play again. In 2007, he
got his chance to play with the Cincinnati Reds and was then traded to the Texas Rangers the following year. He has racked up
several individual awards playing for the Rangers including the 2010 American League MVP, 2010 AL Batting Champion, as well as
numerous selections to the midsummer classic.
