Video: Is this swing by Billy Hamilton one of the worst in history?

Billy Hamilton is arguably the fastest player in the major leagues. But the youngster is still learning the ropes at the plate as evidenced by his .176 batting average and .222 on-base percentage.

On Friday, the rookie went down on strikes against Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija in the top of the first inning. And the swing Hamilton took on strike three might go down as one of the most pathetic swings in MLB history.

Have a look for yourself as Hamilton is a bit tardy on a fastball delivered over the middle of the plate. The ball is darn near in the catcher's mitt before Hamilton pulls the trigger on his swing.

As one commentator put it, "That might be the worst major league swing I've ever witnessed."
