Billy Hamilton is one of the very best defensive center fielders in baseball, and tonight he went all out to make one of his best catches of the season. He’s really fast, man. Fast enough to get asked jokingly about racing Usain Bolt, and fast enough to chase this Carlos Beltran hit down.
The WeatherTech Sports Car Championship’s Prototype Challenge cars may be pretty long in the tooth by now, but they’re still mighty quick, especially in WTSC’s mixed field. Case in point: just watch driver Kyle Marcelli pick off cars one by one in this race pass supercut. Watch in awe.
