Reds center fielder/purveyor of hasty feats Billy Hamilton against the Pirates on Friday night (GameTracker) authored a bunt single that is quite possibly unlike any bunt single you've ever and never seen before. Please bear slack-jawed witness ...

My, my. My, my, my, my, my.

Let's have a look at this -- back and to the left, back and to the left -- from a different angle ...

I can think of a not-insubstantial list of players who, should they attempt a mid-flight arabesque such as this, would see their groins detach and soar into the parking lot. For Billy Hamilton, though, this merely falls under the growing sub-genre of Billy Hamilton's Routine Miracles.

Oh, moments later, he'd score on a cleanly handled double off the wall.

Thank you, Billy Hamilton, for playing this, our baseball.
