Trot Times for June 3, 2013

The big news of the day was speedster Billy Hamilton's inside-the-park home run down in Toledo last night. The last time Hamilton had an inside-the-park home run, he set the record for the single fastest circuit in Tater Trot Tracker history. Could he repeat it last night?

Let's get to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Domonic Brown, Philadelphia Phillies – 22.08 seconds [video]
At this point, we all have to wonder when it was that Brown was taking a walk in the woods during a lightning storm and stumbled across that just-struck tree. There's no other explanation for his incredible run.

Slowest Trot: Carlos Beltran, St. Louis Cardinals – 25.02 seconds [video]
Beltran edges out Adrian Gonzalez for the slowest trot of the day.

Quickest Trot: Raul Ibanez, Seattle Mariners – 18.93 seconds [video]
The final payout of a 13-pitch at-bat for Ibanez. One of only two trots to come in under 20-seconds on Monday.
