Josh Hamilton Honors God After Record Homers

Ad Feedback

Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton made history Tuesday night, hitting four homeruns in one game against the Baltimore Orioles.

Hamilton, an outspoken Christian, is the 16th player to hit that amount of homers in Major League Baseball history.

"I think about what God's done in my life, everything I did to mess it up," he said after the game.

"To finally surrender everything and pursue that relationship with Christ on a daily basis and understanding when I don't pursue it, I end up messing up," Hamilton continued. "Understanding that what I'm doing and what God's allowed me to do, coming back from everything I went through and allowing me to play the game at the level I play it, it's pretty amazing to think about."

Hamilton was a first-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 1999, but soon found himself battling drug and alcohol addiction.

Following Tuesday's historic night, he said it's going to take "a little bit for it to sink in."

Hamilton told fans he prays everyday and will continue to live his life "one day at a time."

"Tomorrow is not promised and yesterday's gone," he said.
