Texas Rangers' Josh Hamilton Wins AL MVP Award

Ad Feedback

Major League Baseball's Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has been voted the most valuable player in the American League and he's giving God the glory.

Hamilton's early baseball career was interrupted by eight trips to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction.

"I would say a 99 percent chance that this would never happen," he said. "I mean, honestly, I think a lot of people would agree with that."

"I do reflect. If I didn't reflect, 'I' might start sneaking in there; a little ego might start sneaking in there, and that's one thing I don't want to happen," he added. "So I do reflect and I think about where I was at my lowest time."

Hamilton helped the Rangers reach their first World Series.

His .359 batting average led the major leagues. He also hit 32 home runs.

He said he remembers what his life was like before his relationship with Jesus Christ and said without God, none of it would be possible.
