Completely Amazing!!!

Last night I was able to take part in witnessing history made with a spectacular showing of raw power and a sweet swing... Josh Hamilton who plays for the Texas Rangers put on an unbelievable show in last nights MLB Home Run Derby at Yankee Stadium. Hamilton incredibly blasted 28 home runs in the first round of the Home Run Derby setting the new record for the most home runs hit in any round of a MLB Home Run Derby. Hamilton hit home runs totalling 2.36 miles in distance. His longest home run last night was measured at a whopping 518 feet. Wow! That's a long way to hit a ball... I wish I could do that!

The down side of Hamilton hitting 28 homers in the first round was the fatigue that caught up with him in the final round against Justin Morneau who eventually won the Home Run Derby 5-3. Josh Hamilton just ran out of steam. Too bad, I really wanted Josh to win it.

Even though Josh Hamilton couldn't pull off the Home Run Derby victory last night he will always be remember by the towering blast he smashed in the 2008 Home Run Derby and the awesome show he put on for the fans. Good for you Josh! In my opinion Josh Hamilton won the Home Run Derby this year... No question!!!(:

Josh Hamilton was the story; Justin Morneau was the champ!!!

Until my next post, thanks for reading, and keep sports on your mind.
