Mets vs. Reds isn’t exactly a playoff preview, but watching 42-year-old pitcher Bartolo Colon race Billy Hamilton to first base was definitely worth the price of admission for those in attendance.
Listed at 283 pounds, Colon did his best to cover the bag, but had no chance against Hamilton, who’s widely considered the fastest player in the game.
The Reds’ Twitter account even had a little fun with the play.
