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.

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.

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.

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.

Writer-director Tanya Hamilton is interested in the way you can find yourself in a mess and then spend a lifetime working your way out. That is the hand she has dealt Marcus, "The Hurt Locker's" Anthony Mackie, in "Night Catches Us," her first feature film, which is now generating buyer interest after Sundance audiences embraced it over the weekend. Set in Philadelphia circa 1976, Marcus has come home for his father's funeral. As things unfold we learn he came of age during the Black Panther movement and essentially, he's returning home a marked man finally ready to face his past.

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.

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.

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.

Angels 11, Giants 4 AT THE PLATE: Josh Hamilton doubled to left-center field in the fourth and hit a run-scoring double to right-center in the fifth to improve his spring average to .391 (nine for 23). J.B. Shuck, battling Collin Cowgill for a reserve outfield spot, had a single and a two-run double. Chris Iannetta walked twice and hit a solo homer, his third of the spring. Grant Green hit a two-run double in the eighth. ON THE MOUND: Tyler Skaggs, who entered with a 6.14 earned-run average in four games, gave up one run and seven hits in 51/3 innings, striking out two and walking three in a 96-pitch effort that Manager Mike Scioscia called "a huge step forward" for the 22-year-old left-hander.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- It had been a calf injury that delayed Josh Hamilton's Cactus League debut until Monday. He singled for his first hit, then took off for second base. For the Angels, that was as good a sign as any. The swing might not be there yet, but the legs are back. "It felt good," Hamilton said. "I did all the things you're supposed to be able to do on the field. " On Monday he did, since the Angels limited him to designated hitter in a game against the San Francisco Giants.

The principal of the elementary school that Whitney Houston attended in East Orange, N.J. -- the school that was renamed in her honor in 1997 -- was among those invited to the private funeral at New Hope Baptist Church. As Henry W. Hamilton arrived he showed the formal invitation that would grant him access to the church, where celebrities, family and friends of Houston were gathering for what is being called a “home-going ceremony.” The invitation features a close-up picture of Houston smiling and in a glamorous off-the-shoulder dress against a violet background.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is set to make his Cactus League debut Monday, giving him two weeks to get ready for opening day. Hamilton strained his left calf three weeks ago. He is expected to be the Angels' designated hitter Monday - and the cleanup hitter and left fielder in the March 31 opener against the Seattle Mariners. Neither Hamilton nor Manager Mike Scioscia expressed doubt about whether Hamilton would be prepared for the opener. Hamilton got 60 at-bats last spring, in 21 games.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Temperatures are rising in the Phoenix area, but the Angels offense has cooled considerably since the team banged out 15 hits in a 15-3 win over the Chicago Cubs in their Cactus League opener on Feb. 28. In eight exhibition games since, the Angels, who face an Arizona split squad Saturday at Tempe Diablo Stadium, have combined for 25 runs and 69 hits. Only three Angels regulars seem to be swinging the bat well: catcher Chris Iannetta, who is hitting .500 (four for eight)
