Re: Billy Hamilton: #1 on the BA Hot Sheet
Hamilton has super athlete speed. I am not sure anything else he does on the baseball field puts him in super athlete status. Josh Hamilton is a super athlete. Drew Stubbs is a super athlete. Billy Hamilton is super fast. Big difference.
Strongly disagree. Hamilton had a football scholarship to be a receiver at Mississippi State. He was a tremendous HS basketball player. The kid is an elite athlete -- otherwise he'd have had no prayer of success in learning how to switch hit at the professional level. He plays the toughest position on the diamond (that does not require squatting). I think you're going to be surprised at his development as a baseball player, Doug.
