Trot Times for June 7, 2014

A pair of first-ever Major League homers highlighted Saturday’s trots, but I was too busy watching the new season of Orange is the New Black. Priorities, I know. Let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels – 21.33 seconds [video]
Mike Trout versus Chris Sale in the bottom of the 8th inning with the bases loaded. That’s the kind of treat that the baseball gods dole out very rarely. Saturday night, it resulted in this beauty of a blast from the Angels’ young superstar.

Slowest Trot: Marlon Byrd, Philadelphia Phillies – 25.25 seconds [video]
Byrd bests Salvador Perez (24.5 seconds) for the day’s slowest trot.

Quickest Trot: Dustin Pedroia, Boston Red Sox – 18.94 seconds [video]
The Boston second-baseman beats out a slew of sub-twenty-second trots for the quickest trot of the night.
