His home run Sunday off Roy Oswalt has now provided him the equipment to pick up golf if he wants to. Hamilton's blast, which was estimated at 468 feet by the ballpark, was an estimated 485 feet by one stat service. That's enough to get Hamilton a set of clubs from Callaway.
For the remainder of the season, Callaway is giving an major leaguer who hits a homer at least 470 feet a set of Callaway Diablo Edge clubs. Hamilton is the fourth major leaguer to garner a set of sticks so far this season, joining Atlanta's Jason Heyward, Washington's Adam Dunn and St. Louis' Colby Rasmus.
Hamilton's homer, which reached the upper deck in right center, is the second-longest ballpark ever hit at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Jose Canseco has the record.
