Josh Hamilton's Home Run Derby

I've always said what makes a great story is great adversity. America loves stories like Josh's, and last night everyone that watched home run derby was introduced to this great American Story. The greatest thing about what Josh is doing is his humility and honesty throughout all of the attention. He's always giving God the glory.

Josh belted 28 home runs in his first round last night hitting against his 71 year old summer league coach from high school.

As balls disappeared into the New York night last night, heads were turned not only from the power of his swing, but from the power of God in his amazing story.

Well before Yankee stadium was announced to play host to the 2008 All-Star game, Josh said he had a dream about the home run derby. He said, in his dream he didn't remember hitting the balls over the fence, he just remembered having the opportunity to tell everyone about what God had done in his life.
