Mike Napoli has fond memories of Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas — Josh Hamilton and Mike Napoli left the Texas Rangers as free agents last winter. Hamilton signed with the Los Angeles Angels and Napoli with the Red Sox.

Fans at Rangers Ballpark loudly booed Hamilton when he returned on April 5. The outfielder had a poor end to the 2012 season and later made critical comments about Texans having less passion for baseball than fans in other cities.
