With his 146th stolen base of the season on Tuesday night, Reds prospect Billy Hamilton passed former Major Leaguer Vince Coleman’s pro baseball single-season record, which was set in 1983.
Hamilton, 21, is Cincinnati’s No. 1 prospect, according to MLB.com and has spent the season with Class A Bakersfield and Double-A Pensacola. Hamilton had nearly as many stolen bases (146) as hits (150) as of the fourth inning of the first game of Pensacola’s doubleheader Tuesday against Montgomery.
In Game 1, Hamilton stole three bases after reaching in his first two at-bats. He walked in the bottom of the first and stole second base, then singled in the bottom of the third and stole second and third.
