Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton has struggled mightily with the bat this year, but his speed and defense never go into a slump and provide value. He demonstrated that last night by scaling the outfield fence to rob a home run in one of the finest web gems of the year.
Hamilton kept drifting back on a deep fly ball hit by St. Louis’ Matt Carpenter until he ran out of room and could only go up. And up he went.
Reds pitcher Amir Garrett had a meme-worthy reaction to the stellar play, channeling a 13-year-old texter with his OMG.
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.
