Clubhouse Chemistry and Hamilton


Recommended Posts

I wanted to start a discussion centered around Hamilton, his previous Alcohol issues, and how this dynamic might affect team chemistry. For example, after a game, a bunch of the guys might want to go out and grab a beer and blow off some steam. I'm sure this happens fairly often on MLB teams. If I were part of that team it would make me uncomfortable to drink alcohol around Hamilton. I would choose not to drink around him as a show of support. Does anyone know how this was handled in Texas? I know when they won various playoffs and divisions they would not have alcohol as part of the celebration.

 

I'm not trying to make any relationship between Hamilton's slump or the teams bad start but I wonder what something like this can do for a team chemistry and how it might hurt or help the chemistry.

 

Please be mature and respectful with your comments. It's not really something to joke about.

Per this article:

The Angels actually have beers available in the clubhouse and that policy has not changed on account of Josh Hamilton joining the team.
