#1  Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers was released due to a right knee injury and more than likely will not return to baseball as this could be his retirement send off. Hamilton who played for the Rangers and had a brief stint with the Los Angeles Angels before returning to the Rangers again this time for the final time. One of Hamilton’s memorable moment was a sad one when he tossed a ball into the stands and a fan who was with his son fell out of the bleachers to his death. Hamilton had drug issues and tried to overcome it several times.

#2  The Washington Nationals Bryce Harper took the New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey deep with his sixth home run of the season. Harper is having a great start to the season and is hitting .400 thus far.

#3 The team that’s not having a great April is the last place San Francisco Giants a team snake bitten now with pitcher Madison Bumgarner (0-3) out for at least ten days at last report with a dirt bike injury. The Giants brass is looking at this seriously as players are beholden from being involved in hard sports activities that could leave serious injuries that can leave them out of action.
