Video: Watch Billy Hamilton beat out routine grounder to first base for a single

Most major league hitters who ground a ball to the first basemen are easy outs. However, most major league hitters are not Billy Hamilton.

Watch as the fleet-footed youngster legs out a relatively routine groundball to Cubs first basemen Anthony Rizzo in the third inning of Sunday's game at Wrigley Field.

Hamilton would use his speed shortly thereafter to record his seventh stolen base of 2014 as well. To say the 23-year-old is fast would be a huge understatement.

Still not convinced? How about this video of him scoring from third on a pop fly to second?
