Nolan Ryan Says Josh Hamilton Should Have Waited Until The Offseason To Quit Chewing Tobacco
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Oct 10, 2012
Hamilton made headlines back in August after he said he was struggling to quit his use of chewing tobacco. Just when you thought that things couldn't get any worse for Josh Hamilton down in Texas, he's now being criticized for choosing to kick his chewing tobacco habit during the season instead of waiting until winter. You would've liked to have thought that if he was going to do that that he would've done it in the offseason or waited until this offseason to do it. As ESPN Dallas notes, Nolan Ryan said during a Tuesday radio appearance that he wishes Hamilton had delayed his decision to ditch the dip until after the Rangers' season was over. Hamilton went 0-4 in that one, leaving the field to a chorus of boos. And not just by any random loudmouth with a Twitter handle, blog or newspaper column, but by the president of the Texas Rangers himself.
