Reds Prospect Billy Hamilton's Legend Continued After Hitting This Inside-The-Park Homer

The story of this minor league season has been Reds shortstop prospect Billy Hamilton, who after stealing 104 bases in 82 games with the Bakersfield Blaze, earned a call-up to the AA Pensacola Blue Wahoos. (He also turned some heads during the All-Star Break Futures Game along the way.)

It all pales when compared with this inside-the-park homer hit last night at home against the Jacksonville Suns, in which the speedster rounds the bases in just under 14 seconds. That's Vince Coleman territory, and it's no surprise that Hamilton has made it his goal to break Coleman's organized-baseball record of 145 steals in a season. If you're not already watching this kid, we suggest you start. [MiLB]
