Reds' Billy Hamilton getting stronger for encore season

CINCINNATI (AP) Billy Hamilton set a Reds rookie record by stealing 56 bases last season, tied for second-most overall in the major leagues. He also wore down as the months wore on, with his hitting and stealing showing a big drop-off.

So the 6-foot, 160-pound outfielder is on a weight-lifting regimen this offseason, trying to make his body ready for the extra wear-and-tear of a major league season.

"This offseason I've had a chance to do stuff like that," Hamilton said on Thursday, before the start of the team's annual media caravan to nearby cities. "I've been getting in the weight room. I'm not a power hitter, but I want to be stronger than last year."
