Best Reds Off-Field Personality: Billy Hamilton

Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton, highly regarded for his strong defense and blazing speed, often won over the crowd not only for his highlight-level play but also his fun-loving, cheery presence in the dugout and clubhouse. Drawing in the limelight for his laconic voice and emphatic on-base celebrations, Hamilton often kept energy high through adverse situations, which Cincinnati actively endured during its 68-94 season. As trade rumors strengthen around his name, Hamilton’s future with the Reds may be in question, but his past should continue to bring a smile to Reds supporters, regardless of where he suits up next.
