He was picked first in the draft by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and joined their minor league system. His drug addiction, however, meant that he dropped out in 2003 and remained out of baseball for three years. Hamilton got clean in 2005. He was drafted by the Cubs and immediately traded to the Reds in 2006. He later played for the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
