Billy Hamilton says joining Braves is ‘like Christmas again’

Billy Hamilton is glad he ended up with the Braves.

The 28-year-old speedster told reporters he was overjoyed when he found out Atlanta claimed him off of waivers after he was designated for assignment by the Royals last week.

“I had chills going down my body when they called me the other morning and told me the Braves had claimed me (on waivers),” Hamilton said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It was like Christmas again.”

Hamilton signed a one-year contract with the Royals this offseason. He hit .211 and stole 18 bases in 93 games with the team before the sides parted ways.
