A New Kind of Celebration?

Summary: Texas Rangers player, Josh Hamilton, is overcoming his battle with drugs and alcohol. When the Rangers won in Oakland, he was only able to celebrate from afar. If the champagne were to get on him, it would compromise is sobriety. When the team won over Tampa Bay they had a surprise for Josh. When they reached the locker room, the team had bottles of Canada Dry Ginger Ale and doused him with it. They altered their celebration to include every member of their team. How awesome is that?

I think that's fabulous. Honestly, I really do.

The MLB are known for doing things like this too. Remember Big League Chew? I know it's hard to believe with all the pumping of steroids, bullying players and other such acts, but Baseball players tend to be pretty respectful in this department.
