Josh Hamilton's wife and family were abused by Rangers fans yesterday. Unless they weren't. There are conflicting reports about this.
Drew Davison writes that Hamilton said his family was treated "okay" by Rangers fans:
Hamilton said his wife and four daughters were treated "OK" in the stands, although the Angels had security posted by them for precautionary reasons.
While Hamilton said his family was fine, there was a security guard around his wife Katie and four daughters.
"Just guys being ugly, inappropriate to my wife," Hamilton said. "People being dumbasses."
The Angels requested a security guard be posted around the family.
Bob Nightengale of the USA Today, however, tweets a different story:
Josh Hamilton on wife needing to call #Rangers security: "They were saying personal stuff, stuff that was inappropriate with kids around.''— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) April 6, 2013
Similarly, from Bill Shaikan:
Josh Hamilton said his wife had to call #Rangers security before yesterday's game even started. Is family coming back today? "Absolutely."— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) April 6, 2013
Hamilton said his wife wasn't bothered by booing but by "inappropriate things." Directed at Hamilton, wife or family? "All of the above."— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) April 6, 2013
So either Rangers fans treated his family okay and there were no real problems, and the Angels had security stationed with his family as a precaution, or else his wife and family were subjected to abuse from Rangers fans and his wife had to call security as a result.
