Base-stealing sensation Billy Hamilton, the former Taylorsville High star who has stolen the hearts of Cincinnati Reds fans since his call-up from the minors on Sept. 2, will be on the 25-man roster tonight when the Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates meet in National League Playoff Wild Card Game.
Hamilton is one the “7 Really Cool People” selections for the Mississippi Business Journal’s NEXT! magazine. You can read his profile on page 22 of the magazine by clicking here.
Hamilton, a centerfielder, stole 13 bases in 14 attempts after being called. He will most likely be used as a pinch-runner if he plays in tonight’s winner-take-all game, which begins tonight at 7 in Pittsburgh. The game will be televised by TBS.
