Carpet company owner 'excited' about Josh Hamilton grand slam

Josh Hamilton's fourth-inning grand slam helped lift the Rangers to a 9-1 victory Wednesday night, and it also gave customers of CC Carpet & Floor Design a financial lift.

The company was running a Grand Slam Payout promotion. If Hamilton hit a grand slam between Aug. 29 and the end of the season, anyone who had purchased flooring or countertops would get a refund of their money.

Those folks cashed in to the tune of $500,000 on Hamilton's third career grand slam and first since May 27, 2008, at Tampa Bay. CC Carpet owner Steve Fitzgerald couldn't be happier.

"I'm excited. I'm great,” said Fitzgerald, who had secured an insurance policy before offering the promotion. "I wish he could have waited until the last game of the season so more people could have gotten it."

Hamilton doesn't just promote the company. He is also a customer. Fitzgerald said that he had been at Hamilton's home Wednesday, and Hamilton confirmed that he's in the process of sprucing up the house with CC Carpet. Hamilton was also pretty pumped about the grand slam.

"CC Carpeting," Hamilton said. "The situation doesn't come that often, so when it does you can't help but think about it. I'm in the business of giving back. It's cool."

Does this mean Josh gets his carpet free also?
