Josh Hamilton had a relapse recently, bringing the ugly truth to life that sometimes our superhuman superstars are actually very human.
Plenty of people will write about this – which has to play out as a nightmarish scene for both Hamilton and his family members who have been battling these demon as a group for many years. We just want to say that our prayers are with Hamilton and we hope he gets past it and rises to a final triumph at some point.
We read his entire book on vacation a few years back in a couple days on the beach. It was a pretty good account of the mind of a junkie. Once you’re a junkie, you’re one every day for the rest of your life. It’s like when someone you love passes away. The pain never really goes away, you battle it every day and put it in the back of your mind. Anyone who tells you anything different is lying.
