Photo via USATODAY.com Los Angeles Angels right fielder Josh Hamilton said his wife Katie Hamilton was forced to call stadium security because of fan abuse during Friday’s Texas Rangers’ home opener. Hamilton said his wife and their two kids remained in their seats the entire game with two security guards present. “She had to call security just because people were getting ugly,” Josh Hamilton said via USA Today Sports prior to Saturday’s game. “It’s cool to get ragged on about normal things, but when you get a little swearing and jawing back at Katie, and saying inappropriate things, it’s a little different story. “They were saying personal stuff, stuff that was inappropriate with kids around. It’s a good lesson for the kids, just about people in general, and not putting faith in them, but the man upstairs.” The Rangers will provide Hamilton’s family a suite for Saturday’s game. Hamilton, who played in his first game against the Rangers since signing a five-year, $125 million contract with the Angels, was booed and taunted during the Rangers 3-2 victory by the sellout crowd. Hamilton said his kids were not bothered by the heckling fans. “It was cool, they weren’t upset when they got home,” Hamilton said. “They kissed me and hugged me, and brought friends over. They played on a trampoline and I jumped on the trampoline with them. It was just like any other game coming home, and I was treating it like that.”
