Just weeks removed from having surgery for a sports hernia, Josh Hamilton is putting on a hitting exhibition in Garland on Tuesday in conjunction with the MLB Winter Meetings coming to DFW next week.
Harold Reynolds, former Seattle Mariner and current lead analyst on MLB Network, is putting on the event that will be a hitting exhibition put on by the former AL MVP.
Reynolds was on the Norm Hitzges Show on KTCK-1310 AM this morning talking about Hamilton's willingness to take part in the event despite the fact he just had surgery and just started running again.
Reynolds said he called to see if Hamilton wanted to cancel and the answer was a quick "no way".
There's also going to be a series of speakers at the event, highlighted by MLB Network's Peter Gammons, big-league scout Dave Roberts and former Rangers manager and current Baltimore Orioles skipper Buck Showalter.
The event is free of charge and open to anyone over the age of 5, and will be held at the Garland Special Events Center from 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday.
