This Just In: Billy Hamilton is fast

If you haven't seen Reds rookie outfielder play yet.  Well, he is fast:
 
He is really fast:

He is one of the fastest players I have ever seen since I started watching, maybe the fastest.  I always thought of Bo Jackson as the fastest since the early 80s. Former Royal Willie Wilson should be mentioned also.  I wonder how Hamilton will compare to Negro League legend James "Cool Papa" Bell.  The story goes Bell was so fast he can turn off the lights and be in bed by the time the room would go dark.
Hamilton can be considered the most exciting player in baseball:

I hope he is able to hit on a consistent basis and use his speed for an advantage.  Love to see him have a long MLB career.
