Billy Hamilton just redefined the phrase “off the wall.”
Because that’s exactly what he did with this catch last night, where it looked more like he was falling onto the wall rather than running into it.
In the top of the third inning, Carlos Asuaje hit a shot to center field that looked destined to result in extra bases for the Padres second baseman. Hamilton had other ideas, though.
Hamilton tracked the ball as he raced towards the outfield wall and actually overran it a bit, meaning he had to adjust in midair to make the catch.
Take a look below.
