Billy Hamilton defied gravity and levitated on this leaping catch

Billy Hamilton put on a skills clinic on Tuesday night. With the Reds taking on the Mets in Queens, Hamilton first took part in the race of a century when he went up against Bartolo Colon in the third inning.

He somehow topped even that when he made this leaping catch against Kevin Plawecki in the bottom of the fifth. Showing off the kind of speed that Superman used to reverse the course of the Earth in "Superman 2," Hamilton broke physics when he found himself hovering in the air.

Here's an artist's rendering.
