Drug Dealer Disappointed Josh Hamilton Didn't Reach Full Potential As Heroin Addict

ORLANDO—Benjamin "Dry Bones" Gray, a drug dealer and former supplier to Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, expressed bitter disappointment over the centerfielder's all-too-brief career as a heroin addict.

Burroughs."
