Nick Hamilton is an Indians minor leaguer. His dad, Tom Hamilton, is an Indians radio announcer. Yesterday, unexpectedly, Terry Francona gave the younger Hamilton the start at DH, which was his first action in a major league game of any kind, spring training included.
His dad wasn’t working the game, but he was in the booth, and the Fox cameras caught him reacting to his son’s appearance. As Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports — with video included — it was an emotional day for everyone.
