Billy Hamilton ran so dang far to make this catch (Video)
Billy Hamilton turned a sure double in the gap into a catch at the wall during the second inning of Cincinnati’s game against Houston on Saturday, making a grab that will no doubt you leave you awestruck.
Batting with two outs and a runner on third in the bottom of the second, the Astros’ Jake Marisnick belted a ball to right center. Hamilton seemed to be playing Marisnick slightly to pull, meaning he had a really long distance to cover for the catch, which was in the right-center gap. But he made it right in front of the bullpen:
There aren't very many gaps in the outfield with Billy Hamilton in center.https://t.co/HPo6DstnrZ
