Video: BTN announcer tears up watching son's 1st MLB at-bat

BTN basketball play-by-play announcer Tom Hamilton, also the voice of the Cleveland Indians, had a special moment Monday afternoon. At the ballpark as a fan, for a change, Hamilton watched his son, Nick, Cleveland’s 35th pick in the 2012 MLB amateur draft, get his first career MLB at-bat. It was a proud moment for dad, obviously, and cameras even caught him tearing up. Nick, the former Kent State star, grounded out to second and finished the day 0-for-4.
