Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton faced his former club. Hamilton came in peace. Early in spring training, Hamilton said “There’s true baseball fans in Texas, but it’s not a true baseball town.” That sparked a furor in the region that Hamilton still calls home. Hamilton offered more flattering comments about the Rangers’ fan base. “I loved Texas,” he said. “The fans were great when I was there. It was a chapter in my life … and I enjoyed every minute of it. “It’s great support when you’re getting 50,000 on a Friday night instead of going to high-school football. That was fun. It was an exciting ride, and I wish them the best.” The Angels are setting up a clubhouse pool on whether Hamilton receives more boos or cheers when he returns to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on April 5. Hamilton expects to be booed. “I got booed when I played there,” said Hamilton, alluding to the response to his final game as a Ranger. “Why wouldn’t I get booed when I play there as an Angel?”
