Star Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton has had past problems with alcohol. He stated earlier this year he would avoid the conventional champagne celebration with teammates if it presented itself. Here, Josh enjoys a celebratory ginger ale, all by his lonesome.

The Texas Rangers advanced to the American League Championship Series last night, for the first time in team history. Hamilton, whose alcoholism almost derailed his promising career, played very poorly in the Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Maybe the guy could use a drink after being a no-show in the five game set.
