Former U.S. Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has been working for the last year as a high-priced escort, charging clients up to $600 an hour. The story was first reported by thesmokinggun.com . A reporter for the website approached Hamilton in the lobby of a Las Vegas hotel. At first she denied it, before finally admitting she was an escort. On her Twitter account Thursday, Hamilton took full responsibility for her actions: "I cannot emphasize enough how sorry I am to anyone I have hurt as a result of my actions and greatly appreciate the support from family and those closest to me. "I fully intend to make amends and get back to being a good mother, wife, daughter, and friend.

The Angels have played three games since cleanup batter Josh Hamilton went on the disabled list. The cleanup batters: David Freese in the first game, Raul Ibanez in the second and Howie Kendrick in the third. Kendrick, the Angels' second baseman, has started 903 career games, 12 in the cleanup spot. For now, Kendrick is likely to be the cleanup batter against left-handed starters, Manager Mike Scioscia said. The Angels like the idea of a left-handed batter behind Albert Pujols and in the cleanup spot against right-handers, Scioscia said.

Three-time Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton made headlines Thursday after admitting that she worked as a high-priced escort for the last year, charging $600 an hour to spend time with clients. Hamilton has used her Twitter account to apologize to her fans and explain herself. In a series of tweets, Hamilton said the following: "I realize I have made highly irrational choices and I take full responsibility for them. I am not a victim here and knew what I was doing. "I was drawn to escorting in large part because it provided many coping mechanisms for me when I was going through a very challenging "time with my marriage and my life.

Suzy Favor Hamilton was such a sports icon that the Big Ten Conference's female-athlete-of-the-year award is named for the former Wisconsin runner. That image is in stunning contrast with Hamilton's admission that she spent parts of the last year as a $600-an-hour call girl. In a story first reported by thesmokinggun.com and on her Twitter feed, Hamilton took full responsibility for what she called "a huge mistake. " She said depression had contributed to her decision to work for a Las Vegas-based escort service.

Top city officials are leading a drive to replace Los Angeles Planning Director Calvin Hamilton, who has held the job for more than 20 years, because they say he is not up to the demands of a new, increasingly political era in urban planning. The effort to dislodge Hamilton is led by City Council President Pat Russell and other members of the council who say they have discussed the matter with Mayor Tom Bradley and have met no resistance.

Neither jet lag nor late arriving luggage could put a damper on a historic trip to Dublin, Ireland, by the Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High football team. The Knights took care of business Friday, getting a 60-yard interception return for a touchdown by Nick Holland en route to 27-15 victory over Hamilton of Chandler, Ariz. The Knights left Southern California on Tuesday and encountered some travel problems on the way to Dublin. They had to practice two days without shoulder pads while waiting for their luggage to arrive, but Coach Kevin Rooney made sure the team wasn't distracted in its preparations.

There were 10 lead changes in the second half of a hard-fought City Section Division I championship boys' basketball game Saturday night, just what was expected in the long-anticipated duel between Westchester and Woodland Hills El Camino Real at Cal State Dominguez Hills. But when the going got tough, the Comets turned to senior guard Matthew Grant. He contributed a three-pointer with 2 minutes 44 seconds left, then another basket with 2:03 remaining, and Westchester finally pulled away for a 65-59 victory to win a 12th City championship for Coach Ed Azzam.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton injured his left thumb sliding head-first into first base Tuesday night, but that didn't prevent the Angels left fielder from giving Major League Baseball two thumbs down to an instant-replay ruling in the fifth inning of the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners. With a runner on second and one out, Corey Hart lofted a fly ball to deep left that Hamilton appeared to catch above his head and pull toward his body, but the ball squirted out on the glove-to-hand transfer and fell to the ground.

SEATTLE -- Josh Hamilton has a complete tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb and said he will undergo surgery in the coming days, a procedure that could sideline the hot-hitting Angels left fielder for six to eight weeks. Hamilton, who injured the thumb on a head-first slide into first base in the seventh inning of Tuesday night's 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners, also tore a capsule in the thumb. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list and replaced on the roster by outfielder J.B. Shuck, who was recalled from triple-A Salt Lake.

SEATTLE -- Texas General Manager Jon Daniels wanted to cover his eyes every time former Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton barreled toward first base and launched his 6-foot-4, 240-pound frame headfirst into the bag. "He drove me crazy when he did that," Daniels said in a 2013 interview. "You have a 240-pound guy who is as fast and as explosive as he is … you just cringe when he dives in. You're saying, 'Get up! Get up!' But that's his style of play. I don't think you can take that from him. " Hamilton's aggressive - some would say reckless - approach usually serves him well, but his latest ill-advised and instinct-induced dive into first base will take the hot-hitting left fielder away from the Angels for six to eight weeks.

SEATTLE -- X-rays on Josh Hamilton's left thumb, which he injured in a head-first slide into first base trying to beat out a seventh-inning grounder Tuesday night, were negative, but the Angels left fielder will undergo an MRI test on Wednesday to determine if there is any ligament or tendon damage. “It hurts,” Hamilton said after the Angels' 5-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. “It stinks that it happened. I don't know how many times I've done that before and this has never happened.

HOUSTON - Josh Hamilton has a little more bounce in his step these days, which is understandable. The Angels left fielder is batting .500 (12 for 24) with two home runs and six runs batted in through seven games, and he drew three walks in a game for the first time since 2009 and only the fourth time in his career Monday in a 9-1 victory over the Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park. The hot start on the heels of a dismal 2013 may have something to do with the bounce that has returned to Hamilton's stance, a timing mechanism that has helped the normally free-swinging slugger "slow the game down," see the ball better and lay off the pitches he often got himself out on last season.

Angels 5, Astros 1 KEY MOMENT: Josh Hamilton, who struck out four times in his first five at-bats against left-handers this season, hit a two-run home run to right field against left-hander Dallas Keuchel to cap a three-run rally and give the Angels a 4-1 lead in the fifth inning. BOX SCORE: Angels 5, Astros 1 AT THE PLATE: Hamilton beat the Astros' exaggerated shift with two infield singles that would have been routine grounders to a normally positioned shortstop.

The five day laborers were huddled over some dice and coins they'd tossed on the asphalt of a Home Depot parking lot in Westlake. They were passing the time on a late afternoon, after another fruitless day waiting to be hired. I asked them about another day laborer, Manuel Jamines, who was holding a large knife when he was shot by police just a block away. The shooting led to a near riot and ongoing protests, and I'd come to the neighborhood to get a feel for what was happening.

HOUSTON - There are probably a bunch of crumpled-up scouting reports on Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs in trash cans across America this weekend. The 22-year-old left-hander made six exhibition starts this spring, featuring a 94-mph, four-seam fastball, curve and changeup. But it was a sinking two-seam fastball that was most responsible for the eight-inning gem he threw in a 5-1 victory over the Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park on Saturday night. “That's what you have to do - you have to keep your secret weapon in your back pocket,” Skaggs said after giving up one run and four hits, striking out five and walking one in a masterful 95-pitch performance.

 With Zach LaVine announcing he's leaving UCLA for the NBA, Bruin fans were hoping that St. John Bosco's Daniel Hamilton, the younger brother of UCLA redshirt Isaac Hamilton, might decide to join the Bruins to help replace LaVine. But Daniel Hamilton said Saturday after scoring 22 points in the Braves' Division II state championship victory over Folsom that he's headed to Connecticut. He said he likes Connecticut Coach Kevin Ollie, a former Crenshaw player who made a similar move to the East Coast.
