Katie Hamilton, the wife of Los Angeles Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton, was forced to call stadium security because of the fan abuse Friday during the Texas Rangers' home opener.

Katie Hamilton and the kids remained in their seats the entire game, Josh Hamilton said, with a security guard present the entire game.

"It's cool to get ragged on about normal things,'' Josh Hamilton said, but when you get a little swearing and jawing back at Katie, and saying inappropriate things, it's a little different story.

"They were saying personal stuff, stuff that was inappropriate with kids around. It's a good lesson for the kids, just about people in general, and not putting faith in them, but the man upstairs.''
