Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"A lot of this game is luck. You'll hit the ball hard four times and get nothing for it. Other times, you'll hit some bleeders and they find the holes." - Darryl Hamilton in USA Today Baseball Weekly (September 6-12, 1991)

Batting leadoff for the San Francisco Giants , Hamilton hit a single to right field in the first inning off Texas Rangers lefty Darren Oliver .

Did you know that three different Milwaukee Brewers ( Tommy Harper , Paul Molitor , Pat Listach ) had each stolen forty-or-more bases in a single season through 1992, the year Darryl Hamilton stole 41? Did you know the only one in that set of Brew Crew base thieves who batted lefty was Hamilton? Did you know Hamilton lost his life in murder-suicide? An excerpt from USA Today (Brent Schrotenboer, 08-04-2015, Source ) appears below:

Darryl Hamilton killed in apparent murder-suicide

Darryl Hamilton, an outfielder for five teams over 13 major league seasons, was found dead at a home in Pearland, Texas, Sunday after an apparent murder-suicide, police said Monday.

According to a report from Pearland police, Hamilton suffered multiple gunshot wounds during a dispute at the home in suburban Houston. Monica Jordan, 44, was found dead in another part of the home, apparently by self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

Hamilton and Jordan's 14-month-old child was also in the house unharmed, according to the police, and the child was turned over to protective services.

Hamilton, 50, retired in 2001 after a career as a .291 hitter that included four postseason trips. He has made appearances as a broadcaster over the past few years, most notably with MLB Network and the Milwaukee Brewers .

He played for the Brewers , Texas Rangers , Colorado Rockies , San Francisco Giants and New York Mets . Hamilton maintained an active Twitter account and tweeted congratulations to Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer on his no-hitter Saturday.

"All of us at Major League Baseball are shocked and saddened by this tragedy," commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. "Darryl followed a successful 13-year career on the field by assembling a multifaceted career in our game, working for MLB Advanced Media and in our Baseball Operations Department before moving on to MLB Network.

"He was a talented and personable individual, and we were proud to call him a member of the baseball family. On behalf of Major League Baseball, I extend my deepest sympathies to Darryl's family and his many friends throughout our game."

Hamilton's best season was 1998, when he batted .308 and scored 98 runs for the Rockies and Giants .

From 1991-93, he hit .306 for the Brewers , where he played seven seasons in total (he missed the 1989 season).

"All of us are stunned and saddened with the news of this horrible tragedy, something that is impossible for us to even begin to comprehend," said Brewers general manager Doug Melvin. "Our thoughts and prayers go to Darryl's family and friends, and he will be greatly missed. Darryl was a wonderful player for our organization, but more importantly, he was a true gentleman and a great friend to many here."

After leaving Milwaukee , he then bounced around to four teams in four years before playing his last two full seasons with the New York Mets . Hamilton hit .308 with two different teams in 1998 and .315, again with two different teams, in 1999. He helped lead the Mets to the 1999 National League Championship Series and made an appearance with the team in the 2000 World Series at the age of 35.

On September 28, 1923 , the Yankees had an American League record 30-hits in a 9-inning game. On August 28, 1992 , the Milwaukee Brewers broke their record when they recorded 31-hits in a 9-inning game - Scott Fletcher (5 hits), Kevin Seitzer (5 hits), Darry Hamilton (4 hits), Pat Listach (4 hits), Paul Molitor (3 hits), Dante Bichette (2 hits), Jim Gantner (2 hits), John Jaha (2 hits), B.J. Surhoff (2 hits), Robin Yount (1 hit) and Greg Vaughn (1 hit).
