Cincinnati Reds speedster Billy Hamilton decided to showcase just how fast he really is by stealing third-base on a mound throwback.

By Robby Sabo

For the Miami Marlins, this one is straight up embarrassing.

In pure Little League fashion Cincinnati Reds speed-demon Billy Hamilton decided to swipe third-base on a throwback from the catcher to the pitcher.


As Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto threw a lolipop to pitcher Adam Conley (who also turned his back to third-base), Hamilton jetted to third-base. Not even a good old “college-try” throw could be managed.

The man could’ve scooted into third standing up while waving to the crowd.

He could have voted for Gardy en route to third-base.

Despite the brilliant play, Miami handled the Reds by the final of 14-3. This was Hamilton’s 44th stolen base on the season, 11 ahead of Marlin’s second-baseman Dee Gordon, who is currently injured.
