Darryl Hamilton was a former Major League outfielder who played with several teams from 1988-2001.

Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hamilton spent time with the Milwaukee Brewers (1988, 1990-95), Texas Rangers (1996), San Francisco Giants (1997-1998), Colorado Rockies (1998-1999) and New York Mets (1999-2001).

His career totals included a .291 batting average with 51 homers and 454 runs batted in, playing 1328 games. Was a ground ball hitter who rarely struck out.

A great fielder at all outfield positions, Hamilton recorded 2711 putouts, with 46 assists garnering a fielding percentage of .995 in 2771 total chances. He holds the American League records for consecutive errorless chances (541) and errorless games (229).

He played college baseball at Louisiana State University.

 

Hamilton’s life ended tragically at the age of 50.

On Sunday, June 21, 2015, Hamilton and girlfriend Monica Jordan were found dead in a Pearland, Texas residence, in what appeared to be a murder-suicide. Investigators said it appeared Hamilton had been shot more than once and Jordan died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Hamilton and Jordan’s 15 month-old child was found alive by police in the home. It was ruled a murder-suicide.

At the time of his death, he had been working for the MLB Network and MLB.com.

Hamilton was married twice to two celebrities. He was married to Access Hollywood anchor Shaun Robinson in 1994. He also was married to fashion model Ursaline Steinke in 2000, with whom he had two sons. Both marriages ended in divorce.

Marlins looking for a “new voice” after firing manager Mike Redmond

With the 2015 baseball season moving along daily and certain teams getting off to slow starts, managers on the hot seat were a daily topic.

Ron Roenicke of the Milwaukee Brewers was rumored to be the first to get fired and he was.

The second name was Mike Redmond of the Miami Marlins due to the fact that management went out and made trades and spent money in the off-season to give the team a chance to challenge the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves in the NL East.

On Sunday, Redmond learned his fate after a disappointing 16-22 start to the 2015 season. The Marlins also let his bench coach, Rob Leary go after the team was swept by the Braves.

The Marlins entered the season with high hopes, but got off to a 3-11 start. Miami then rebounded and improved to 12-12 on May 2. But since then, the club has played inconsistent , going 4-10 after the latest sweep by Atlanta.

The club will announce Redmond’s replacement at an 11 a.m. ET news conference on Monday and rumors suggest that the new manager could be Dusty Baker, former manager Jack McKeon, current third base coach Brett Butler, special assistant to the GM Jeff Conine. Tony Perez and Andre Dawson also work in the Marlins’ front office.

The 44-year-old Redmond, who replaced Ozzie Guillen after the 2012 season, had his contract extended through 2017 before the final game of 2014 where the Marlins improved by 15 wins, and finished 77-85.

The former major league catcher inherited a young team that went 62-100 in his first season. Overall, he finishes with a record of 155-207.

President of baseball operations Michael Hill said, ”Really, we’re just looking for a new voice.”

Reds’ newest bullpen member is Nick Christiani; replaces Jonathan Broxton

Right-handed reliever Nick Christiani, who has pitched the last two seasons at Triple-A Louisville, was told late Thursday morning when Bats manager Jim Riggleman told him he was going to the major leagues to pitch for the Reds.

The Cincinnati Reds activated catcher Ryan Hanigan from the 15-day disabled list on Friday. To make room on the 25-man roster, catcher Corky Miller was designated for assignment.

Devin Mesoraco did most of the catching while Hanigan was out, with Miller catching in six games.

Hanigan had been on the disabled list since April 21 with a strained left oblique and a sore right thumb. He batted 3-for-8 with two RBIs in three games during a rehab assignment with Triple-A Louisville.

The 32-year-old Hanigan was in the Reds lineup Friday night against the Milwaukee Brewers, a 4-3 win for Cincinnati.
