Billy Hamilton made a spectacular catch and then ran up the wall to deliver the ball to a fan

Billy Hamilton is known to make a dazzling catch or two -- or three. He can make a lot of amazing catches, let's put it that way. The Reds outfielder made yet another spectacular catch on Tuesday, and this time, a fan got a parting gift.
In the bottom of the eighth inning during the Indians' 8-1 win over the Reds, Francisco Lindor cranked a ball toward center field. It looked like it had a chance to fall, but not if Hamilton had anything to say about it:

He made the grab and with all of his speed, found himself among the crowd. Hamilton got a pat on the shoulder and gifted the ball to a group of very excited fans. The Reds fan who ended up with the ball ended up giving it to a young Indians fan which is great ball etiquette.
Why not leave the game with a parting gift?
