I guess those questions will be better dealt with later...
I'd be surprised. And I hope not. The interaction between players and fans during games is actually pretty great. Players and fans (particularly outfielders) chat throughout the game, and Hamilton I'm sure has thrown thousands of balls to players in his career without incident. My guess is he was actually trying to flip it to the stands for the kid.

I wonder if he'll have any comments

So sad. That poor little boy and his family. Chokes me up just thinking about how that little guy is feeling today. Really a tragedy.

In world we live in today, Hamilton will be hounded by media until he gives a comment if he doesn't want to.

I feel bad for him too. I am sure he is consumed with guilt.

Hamilton is no more at fault then Derek Holland for throwing the pitch no more at fault then Connor Jackson for fouling it off no more at fault then the initial fan who could not field the foul ball etc... Hamilton just happen to be the last in in a awful chain reaction. I know it will be hard for him to see that but it is the truth. We can't stop or start faith, it just happens.

On 4th of July we went over to talk to me my new neighbors. Their 7 year old daughter came out and ran up to my 3 year old to say hi. It caused him to dart out past me into the street, thank god no cars were coming but that easily could have ended up tragic. I kept replaying it in my mind becasue he basically got by me from blocking him. Just was another reminder how life is so fragile.

Amazing how quickly life can change. Here's a guy trying to catch a ball for his son and the next minute he's gone. I feel so bad for that kid having to see that.
