Hamilton denies using obscene gesture

Hamilton said some of the fans crossed the line, but he also had fun with it too. He played like he was throwing a football in reference to his football town comments this spring.
But did he take things too far by making an obscene gesture to fans during Sunday’s 7-3 Texas win? Many people in the stands took to social media sites to say that Hamilton did just that.
Josh Hamilton gave us a football sign cause were a "football town". HE ALSO GAVE US A DIVISION LEAD HAHAHA THANKS FOR 4-25 JOSH!!!!— C lace (@therealc_lace) April 8, 2013
Hamilton denied that.
"I never would do that," Hamilton said. "Ever. I never would flip anybody off."
Hamilton went 3 for 5 Sunday and was booed in every at-bat. The reception Hamilton got in the series even surprised Hamilton a little.
"A little more hectic than I expected," he said. "The persistency of the crowd, which after the first couple of bats the first day I understood, I was able to block out better. It was surprising, but not real surprising. A little disappointing more than anything."
