Ex-Ranger Josh Hamilton faces felony charge of injury to a child

KELLER, Texas—Former Texas Rangers All-Star slugger Josh Hamilton has been charged with injury to a child, a third-degree felony, after his 14-year-old daughter told his ex-wife that he’d struck her.

Hamilton, 38, surrendered Wednesday to the Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth, Texas, and was released on $35,000 bond. If convicted, he could be sentenced to two to 10 years in prison.

According to an affidavit by a Keller Police Department detective, Hamilton’s daughter told police about an incident on Sept. 30. She says she made a comment to Hamilton that upset him, so he threw a full bottle overhand at her, hitting her in the chest, then began cursing and shouting at her. He pulled away the chair on which she rested her feet and threw it, breaking the chair. It didn’t hit her, but he then grabbed her by the shoulders and lifted her from the chair on which she sat. She fell to the floor, from which he lifted her, threw her over his shoulder and carried her to her bedroom.

The girl said at this point she was telling Hamilton, “I’m sorry.’’ Upon reaching her bedroom door, he tossed the teen onto her bed, pressed her face onto the mattress and began hitting her legs with an open hand and closed fist.

Feds probe whether White Sox insider involved in sale of thousands of complimentary game tickets on StubHub

Even in the age of StubHub, the sheer number of tickets that one man was selling to Chicago White Sox games through the online resale forum was mind-boggling.

Over the course of three seasons from 2016 to 2018, Bruce Lee sold more than 35,000 tickets to Sox home games through StubHub, generating nearly $1 million in revenue, according to federal records unsealed this week.
