Texas Rangers sluggerÂ Josh Hamilton smelled more than just hot dogs and peanuts wafting down from the stands during Game 1 of the World Series in San Francisco on Wednesday night.
The home run hitter was shocked when he recognized the odor of marijuana drifting from the center field seats at AT&T Park, theÂ New York Post reported Thursday.
Hamilton, whose battle with alcohol and drug addiction has been well documented, told theÂ Post weed was not one of his former vices, but that he was quite surprised by the unusual ballpark aroma.
“Weed, no, that wasn’t my deal,” said Hamilton. â€œIt was crazy. I was looking at the cops a couple of times during the game.”
TheÂ Post reported the incident was Hamiltonâ€™s second straight run-in with blatant weed use since arriving in San Francisco for the first two games of the Series.
“My wife and I were walking down the street (Tuesday) and there was a guy smoking a joint, with a cop 50 yards away,” he told the Post.
