Everyone knows Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton is really fast, but just how quick is he?

During the Reds' game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday, Hamilton demonstrated his otherworldly speed by stealing third on the throw back to the pitcher.

Yes, you read that right.

During the top of the third inning, Hamilton took off as Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto threw the ball back to pitcher Adam Conley. Before anyone realized what had happened, Hamilton had reached third with ease.

The speedster couldn't do it all for the Reds, though, as the Marlins easily won 14-3. Hamilton comfortably leads the league in stolen bases with 44, and he is 11 steals ahead of Dee Gordon.
