It's safe to say when the Reds scouted Billy Hamilton, power was not listed among his tools.
Hamilton had the other four covered: He could run, of course. He could hit for average. He could throw. And he could play defense.
But the only home runs he was likely to hit were inside-the-parkers. That held to form in the minors. Hamilton hit a home run once every 155 at-bats.
