Did Billy Hamilton Just Make The Best Catch In Baseball This Year?

If you’ve never heard of Billy Hamilton, he’s fast. Like, super fast. Like, Usain Bolt fast.

He’s so fast that he broke the all-time professional baseball record for steals when he was in the minor leagues. And now that he’s a pro, he’s showcasing his speed in the outfield.

Check out this catch, one only Billy could make. The Reds outfielder sprinted 123 feet, running 22 mph, to steal a gap hit from the Rangers’ Carlos Beltran Tuesday night.
