MLB, etc.

First, an article about Braves minor league outfield coach Jim Beauchamp, who is in the hospital being treated for leukemia and how much he's met to the Braves organization:

Next, some more articles about Reds outfielder Josh Hamilton, a Christian. The first is on how well he's been doing so far:

The next article is pretty good in that the writer is saying that the Reds and Hamilton need to make sure that he's not doing too much too fast. Here's a quote from Hamilton:

"I thought I'd be more overwhelmed than I am. There's no reason why I shouldn't be overwhelmed, you know?" Hamilton said. "I pray about it. I ask the Lord to keep me on an even keel and focus on the task at hand. So far, that's the way it's been."

Channel 19 news discovered that the man's name was Dean Gregg, 74, from Cannon, Ky.
