Biographical Information[edit]

Darryl Hamilton was signed as an 11th round pick in the 1986 amateur draft by the Milwaukee Brewers and scout Fred Beene.

He collected his first hit on June 3, 1988; he hit his first home run on July 19th of the same year.

He underwent Tommy John surgery in 1994 to repair tendon damage.

Hamilton was fatally shot in an apparent murder/suicide at his home in Pearland, TX. Initial reports were that he had been shot multiple times while the body of his spouse was found with a single apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound; the couple's 14-month-old child was not hurt. Hamilton was working as an analyst for the MLB Network at the time; he had previously worked in the Commissioner's office in the on-field operations department, had done broadcast work for the Brewers and had worked with MLB advanced media.
