The Josh Hamilton story is one which has the making of a movie in 5 years, and that could have been sped up had his 10th inning blast in Game 6 of the World Series been a game winner. Instead of Game 6 being the closing scene of the movie, it will now be a lengthy chapter which is still extremely deep in dramatics. Hamilton said in a post game interview that God had told him he was going to hit a home run:
“He told me, ‘You haven’t hit one in a while, and this is the time you’re going to,’ ” said Hamilton, who had gone 65 at-bats in the postseason without a home run. “You know what? I probably had the most relaxed, peaceful at-bat I’ve had of the whole series at that moment. It’s pretty cool. You ought to try it sometime.”
Unfortunately for Hamilton and the Rangers, the voice speaking said nothing about winning the game:
“There was a period at the end of [the sentence],” Hamilton said. “He didn’t say, ‘You’re going to hit it and you’re going to win.’ “
Who is to argue that Hamilton heard God’s voice, or a voice of someone in the stands? I definitely won’t, but I will be seeing the movie, especially if Hamilton leads the Rangers to a victory in Game 7.
