We can blame the rain for there only being seven games around the majors on Monday, but the scarcity of home runs (only six throughout the league) will have to be blamed on something else. I suggest Miley Cyrus.
Let’s get to the trots!
Home Run of the Day: Carlos Gonzalez, Colorado Rockies – 20.89 seconds [video]
Not a lot to choose from here, so how about this laser from Carlos Gonzalez into the Coors Field seats? It’s the first home run of the year where Gonzalez didn’t take his time to admire it.
Slowest Trot: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado Rockies – 23.78 seconds [video]
Well, someone has to be slowest!
Quickest Trot: Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Rays – 19.64 seconds [video]
And someone has to be fastest. Zobrist’s first home run of the year was a sky-high pop up down the left field line.
