Didn't Adair County native Steve Hamilton play professional basketball for a season or two as well as pro baseball? That would have been in the late 1950s or early 1960s. (He played high school basketball somewhere in Indiana.) -DEE DOWELL
You are absolutely right, I think. He was also an All-American. Perhaps Steve Hamilton's greatest claim to fame is that he and Kentucky All State Basketball Player and Lindsey Wilson College standout Darron Ballou are both Egyptians, whose homes are within a mile of each other, in different times, in in greater Absher, aka Egypt, Adair County District 6, Kentucky. And we have this on the authority of practically the pharaoh of Egypt, Mike Curry. -EW
