Josh Hamilton finished his first season with the Angels in front of his former home crowd. And, as they’ve done all year, the Rangers fans serenaded their former slugger with boos throughout the series and chants such as “Baseball Town,” a reference to his comments made during spring training.
Hamilton flew out to center in his final at-bat in the ninth inning, and tipped his helmet towards the crowds despite a heavy amount of boos.
“That was just to let them know no matter how bad they boo me or bring up things from my past, I still love them,” Hamilton said. “There was nothing sarcastic about it.”
