The crazy thing is that Josh Hamilton was surprisingly smiling on his way into the courthouse.
It seemed that he was unbothered by the heavy allegations against him.
He last played in the MLB back in 2015 when he was a monster on the field. Josh is a 5-time All-Star who was the American League MVP in 2010. He was the #1 overall pick in the 1999 MLB Draft. He’s currently in the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame.
Off the field, Hamilton has had several major personal issues … including a substance abuse problem that he publicly talked about for years. He’s tried to get clean multiple times but there were numerous public slip-ups.
In 2015, his wife filed for divorce after she and the kids could no longer handle his struggles with addiction and abuse.
