NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Hamilton got a World Series ring after playing nearly half a season with the St. Louis Cardinals when they won the 2011 championship.
The 35-year-old Hamilton is now about to enter a different lineup. He’s set to graduate medical school in New York this week.
The next stop for the rookie doctor will be joining the front-line fight against the coronavirus pandemic in one of the world’s hardest-hit areas.
Hamilton says he’s prepared and ready for whatever the job will be.
Hamilton played 47 games in the majors, mostly as a pinch hitter and fill-in first baseman.
