Drafted No. 1 overall in the 1999 MLB Draft, Josh Hamilton wouldn’t make his Major League debut until 2007. Drug and alcohol abuse had derailed the career and life of one of baseball’s most promising talents in decades. Hamilton was out of baseball for nearly three years before he debuted with the Reds. From 2008-12, Hamilton was one of the league’s premier players while playing for the Rangers. The troubled-star captured the 2010 AL MVP, and garnered five-straight All-Star selections.
