On Monday afternoon, the Texas Rangers announced some new additions to their Hall of Fame.

Hamilton posted a batting line of .305/.363/.549 with 142 home runs and 506 RBI over five seasons with Texas from 2009-12 after being acquired from Cincinnati in December 2007. He also had one of the most impressive outings during the 2008 Home Run Derby.
This will also mark the first inductees since Michael Young was inducted in 2016. Young also had some very nice words to share about his former teammate.
I’ve never seen a more physically gifted player than Josh Hamilton. He was born to play baseball. Power, speed, instincts. He could take over baseball games, which is near impossible to do. @Rangers HOF is exactly where he belongs. Congrats, Bone!
