Billy Hamilton Channels His Inner Spidey

Billy Hamilton has been known to flash some leather from time to time.

Recently, the nimble Hamilton decided to do some recreational climbing in St Louis, robbing the Cardinals' Matt Carpenter of a homer in the process.

Dude didn't appear to be using any visible means of support, such as a harness or rope.

Matt Carpenter certainly isn't laughing.
