Slide, Billy, slide

Posted on Updated on

Phillies’ fans in Citizens Bank Park Tuesday probably thought Ben Revere had bopped a bloop single in the bottom of the first when the baseball snapped off his bat and glided toward center field.

Not so fast. Well, unless you’re Billy Hamilton.

The Reds’ speedy center fielder broke on the ball in a flash, made a diving catch and took a long slide on the wet grass on a rainy night in Philly.
