Josh Hamilton looking forward to Globe Life Park return on Thursday
On Wednesday, Josh Hamilton finally picked up his first base hit since (re)joining the Texas Rangers.
With that milestone out of the way, the veteran outfielder will look for more good vibes when he takes the field on Thursday night against the Boston Red Sox: it will be his first appearance in front of Rangers fans at Globe Life Park since returning to the club earlier this season, and his first since 2012.
As quoted by Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, Hamilton is definitely revved up about his return: I am looking forward to being in the area and playing before the fans. I’m excited about it.’’
As Fraley pointed out, the last time Hamilton appeared in Arlington as a Ranger was October 5th, 2012, the night the Rangers lost the American League Wild Card Game to the Baltimore Orioles.
