    Not surprising. Mattair was probably added to replace him.

    Billy Hamilton walked to begin the AFL All-Star game. He then proceeded to steal 2nd and 3rd. His steal of 3rd occurred after the pitch on a throw back from the catcher to the pitcher.

    Billy just made an amazing diving play in deep center.

    Nice diving catch in CF for Billy in the 4th inning. Got a late break but still ran it down.

    More of a running catch then fall, but he covered some ground to get there. Got worried when he kept going toward the wall head first. That is scary.

    The announcers, Severino, Verducci and Mayo have been singing Hamilon's praises all game, and he's been proving them right so far.

    Bunt single to the first side for Billy. Wild throw, Hamilton advances to third. This kid is going to be fun to watch.

    Of course, he scored on a single up the middle.

    Best quote from Mayo. Verducci said tonight's game had enough Billy Hamilton highlights to make a box set, to which Mayo replied, "It would only last eight seconds."

    Hamilton seems to have that "Brandon Phillips Factor". Seems to turn it up when the spotlight is on.

    I thought Partch flashed some good stuff. A couple of his sliders were filthy, and the fastball was good.

    For those of you who haven't seen the great catch mentioned above, here you go. I'm drooling picturing Billy as Cincinnati's every day CF.

    Here is Hamilton stealing 2nd, then stealing 3rd on the catcher's throw back to the pitcher after a pitch

    The steal of third on the throw back to the pitcher is the Hamilton we saw in Dayton. He does things that no one else does. As far as the catch in center, I am surprised people are making that out to be a great play. I think it demonstrates that he has a ways to go to learn to play the position. Does not break back on the ball as hard as he needed to, going back at about 75 percent, then realizes he needs to turn it on and at the last minute, lunges, catches the ball, and falls down. Should have caught the ball without too much trouble. I have no doubt that he will become a great defensive center fielder, but that play shows that he is still a little raw (as anyone would reasonably expect considering lack of experience there). He just needs some experience learning to judge fly balls off the bat.

    Thanks to those who posted the video.
