Trot Times for June 17, 2013

Let's get right to today's trots! Trots from Saturday and Sunday will be coming soon.

Home Run of the Day: Freddie Freeman, Atlanta Braves – 23.3 seconds [video]
A walkoff home run at 1:30 in the morning is impressive even if a three-hour rain delay is the only reason for the late night. Though, of course, Bob Costas probably took it as another example of the end of the world.

Oh, and that Giancarlo Stanton kid did pretty well last night. Two bombs in Chase Field.

Slowest Trot: A.J Pierzynski, Texas Rangers – 23.91 seconds [video]
It's not strange to see A.J. Pierzynski at the top of the slowest trots list, especially when his blast carried down the first base line until finally hitting the foul pole. What is weird is seeing all of that and only a 23.91 second trot! Six of the 19 trots on Monday were 23-seconds long, but zero reached 24.

Quickest Trot: Giancarlo Stanton #2, Miami Marlins – 18.23 seconds [video]
Home run number 100 for Stanton in his very young career. It came as the second home run of the night for him in the ninth inning of a tie game. No wonder he was so excited to speed through those bases.
