VIDEO: Billy Bates Racing a Cheetah

Blazing speed.

Billy Bates only played in 29 MLB games, but he left his mark when he played for the World Series-winning 1990 Reds. MLB Productions dug up this footage of Bates racing a cheetah. Sure, they gave Billy a head start, but still, the guy was fast.

Guess there's just something about Reds players named Billy.
