BREAKING: Darryl Hamilton (1964 – 2015)

Breaking news out of Houston, Texas, as former Brewers outfielder Darryl Hamilton was found dead in his Houston home, in what appears to be a murder-suicide. Yahoo Sports is reporting that Hamilton’s girlfriend, Monica Jordan, age 44, was found dead from a self-inflicted shotgun wound. The couple’s 14-month year old infant was found unharmed at the scene.

Hamilton was drafted by the Brewers in the 11th round of the 1986 draft, and made his debut with the Brewers in June of 1988. His best seasons with the Brewers came in 1991, 1992, and 1993. In 1991, Hamilton hit .311 with 1 home run, 57 RBI, and 16 stolen bases. In ’92, he hit .298 with 5 home runs, 62 RBI, and 41 stolen bases, and in ‘93, he hit .310 with 9 home runs, 48 RBI, and 21 stolen bases. He played primarily right field and center field for the Brewers.

After his time with the Brewers, Hamilton played for the Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants, Colorado Rockies, and New York Mets. In recent years, he has worked in the MLB Central Office and as an analyst for the MLB Network. In 2014, Hamilton started to appear on Brewers radio broadcasts as a road substitute for Bob Uecker.

Hamilton was 50 years old.
