Trot Times for June 26, 2014

While you could be over there making the Tater Trot Tracker a part of your Strat-O-Matic experience, we’ll be getting right to the trots.

Home Run of the Day: Adam Duvall, San Francisco Giants – 21.44 seconds [video]
I once went bowling with some friends and threw a strike in the first frame. Cocky younger me couldn’t help but wonder how great of a feeling it would be if I somehow ended up with a perfect game. I blew it on the next frame, of course.

Still, it makes me wonder what Adam Duvall was thinking Thursday night when he knocked his first major league hit and first major league home run on the same swing of the bat. Don’t get cocky, Adam. I don’t think you’re going to hit a home run every time you come up to the plate.

Slowest Trot: Brandon Phillips, Cincinnati Reds – 25.56 seconds [video]
Dat Dude really loves to take his time around the bases.

Quickest Trot: Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins – 19.74 seconds [video]
Stanton doesn’t run around the bases quite as quickly as his taters leave the yard, but it’s still good enough for the quickest trot of the day. Number two clocked in at only 21.21 seconds.
