The Texas Rangers Josh Hamilton has become one of the more visible superstars in the MLB over the past few years, gaining nationwide popularity through his “story” and his prodigious, tape-measure home runs. And next week, the Dallas Morning News reports today, he’ll be featured on Letterman--again.
Hamilton will be one of 10 All-Stars to appear on Monday’s edition of the Late Show with David Letterman, along with the likes of the Yankees’ Derek Jeter, the Red Sox’ David Ortiz, the Twins’ Joe Mauer and Tigers’ ace Justin Verlander. The group will appear via satellite from Kansas City, and will deliver that night’s Top Ten List.
A little over a year ago, Hamilton made his first appearance on Letterman, a segment that began with an in-studio interview and ended with Letterman and Hamilton taking some batting practice in a blocked-off Manhattan street.
Former Ranger RA Dickey, who has had a Cinderella season with the Mets this year on the back of a power-knuckle ball, will appear on Wednesday’s edition of the Late Show.
