Hamilton at Futures Game
OK….so I have one more thing before I go away for a week.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention SS Billy Hamilton and P Kyle Lotzkar, who played in today’s MLB All-Star Futures Game in Kansas City. Playing for Team USA, Hamilton was 1-for-3 with a two-run triple to center field. Alas, there was no stolen base. For the World Team, Lotzkar pitched a scoreless inning with one hit but allowed an inherited run to score. Click here for the box score.
This is video of Hamilton’s triple:
Anthony Castrovince did a story on Hamilton today from Kansas City. Rickey Henderson even had a take on the speedster. Click here to read the piece.
And here is some more video Hamilton, doing an interview with MLB.com before the game was played.
The next stop for Hamilton will be Double-A Pensacola. And again…no, don’t expect him to be with the Reds this season.
