Brandon Phillips is getting his son some big-league reps early in life and it looks like it is already paying dividends for the 2-year-old, who showed off his batting and baserunning skills while playing with his dad and some of his Reds teammates on Monday.

Micah made good contact on a pitch and showed some speed on the basepaths before hitting the deck thanks to some tricky footwork.

With another 18 years of practice, Micah Phillips has a real shot at following in his All-Star father’s footsteps.
