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).

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.

Hamilton had a bunt single and stole another base in a 6-5 Reds loss to the Seattle Mariners in Glendale, Arizona.

The rookie outfielder started the Reds four-run third inning rally with a bunt single.

The other Reds star of the game was Alfredo Simon. Usually a bullpen specialist for Cincinnati, Simon has been pressed into a starting pitcher this spring while Mat Latos recovers from a surgical procedure. Simon pitched three innings.
