Twitter Pics: Billy Hamilton's steals record

By Patrick Dorsey

Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Billy Hamilton made headlines Tuesday night with his 146th stolen base of the season, breaking Vince Coleman's 29-year-old minor league record during the Pensacola (Fla.) Blue Wahoos' Double-A doubleheader with the Montgomery Biscuits.

This is how fans (and the team) captured the moment -- and the whole evening -- on Twitter, including a particularly positive omen before the games even began:

Woah! Beautiful rainbow over the stadium! twitter.com/BlueWahoosBBal…
