Hamilton continuing to wield magic bat

ARLINGTON -- Josh Hamilton said Friday he is still using the same bat that he used on Tuesday night to hit four home runs.

Hamilton said he's not ready to retire the bat even though he has a tendency to break them more than the average player. He also has a famous tendency to have his bats slip out of his hand and go flying into the stands.

"They put a sticker on the end of my bat, kind of saying that this one's done," Hamilton said. "But I'm still using it. Until it breaks."
