Josh Hamilton Dives and Survives!

by Jason Epstein

Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas points out that Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has resumed headfirst diving, albeit this time in the outfield, not (yet?) while trying to score on a pop-up near the dugout. Hamilton, who suffered a broken bone near the shoulder on the April 12th play at home plate, initially blamed third-base coach Dave Anderson for yelling at him to run, but later apologized. He was out of action for six weeks.
