Wisconsin native Hamilton goes viral during White


Cleveland Guardians radio announcer Tom Hamilton talks after being honored for 25 years of broadcasting, prior to the Indians' baseball game against the Texas Rangers on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, in Cleveland.

Tom Hamilton, a Waterloo High School (Jefferson County) graduate and longtime announcer for the Cleveland Guardians, had some fun with a Saturday night brawl between the Guardians and White Sox, and it became internet-famous in a hurry.

In the sixth inning of a 7-4 White Sox win, Cleveland star Jose Ramírez doubled and slid head-first into second base, then took exception with the way White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson tagged him. Ramírez jumped to his feet, and the two wound up throwing up their hands like prizefighters, ending with both landing punches and Ramírez knocking Anderson backward.
