It's Official...Billy Hamilton is Fast

You probably didn't need me to tell you this, but Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Billy Hamilton is fast.

If you haven't seen the kid run yet, you're in for a treat.  Not only does the second base prospect have 109 stolen bases in 87 games this season, but he's also got blisterling home run speed as well.

According to the Tator Trot Tracker...he made it around the bases in 13.7 seconds Sunday.  By comparison, the quickest trek around the bases in the Majors this season was by Peter Bourjos, who did the deed in 14.26 seconds.
