Video: Another look at Billy Hamilton's first career home run

Billy Hamilton had himself quite the game on Tuesday versus the Cubs.

The 23-year-old rookie reached base four times and smacked the first home run of his major league career. The video clip above shows Hamilton's momentous big fly which he struck against Cubs ace Jeff Samardzija in the bottom of the fifth inning.

In 2,258 career plate appearances in the minor leagues, Hamilton clubbed just 13 home runs, which roughly amounts to 1 in every 174 at-bats. And many of those were of the in-the-park variety.

There was no doubt about Tuesday's blast though. Hamilton clearly crushed it.
