GIF: Billy Hamilton did not hit this pitch
Reds speedster Billy Hamilton did not look particularly good on this swing against the Cubs on Friday.
Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is of course renowned for his footspeed. The question, though, is whether his bat will play at the major-league level. On that point, it's worth nothing that he entered Friday's contest against the Cubs with a 2014 batting line of .170/.220/.234 with 11 strikeouts against just three walks.
Also on that point, it's worth noting that this is an actual swing undertaken by Billy Hamilton against Jeff Samardzija ...
Let us christen this effort, "harvesting wheat with low-slung scythe." It's a useful swing when it comes to ... harvesting wheat.
