Hammerin' Josh Hamilton on TLC

Here's a treat for Reds fans pulling for Josh Hamilton, the Rule 5 outfielder coming back from three years of drug suspensions: Hamilton will be seen in "A Home Run For Trademark," a 9 p.m. Saturday special on TLC. He's part of a construction crew restoring Shoeless Joe Jackson's home in Greenville, S.C., and converting it into a museum.

Hamilton, from Raleigh, N.C., did construction work while out of baseball. On the show, he helps real estate broker Richard C. Davis from A&E's "Flip That House" fame. It was taped last year, before Major League Baseball allowed Hamilton to resume his baseball career. Davis had met Hamilton in 1999, shortly after the baseball player graduated from high school.

TLC has decided to air this at the last minute. It's not listed in TV Guide or our Sunday TV book. Previews were not sent out. But this should be fun to watch. We know he can swing a bat. It will be fun to see him swing a hammer.

Great show! I really enjoyed the end when Josh made comeback in the minors.
