The single-slowest trot tracked belongs to Luke Scott at 35.76 seconds, who pulled his hamstring during the trot. John Buck also pulled a hamstring during his trot, but his 36.62 second trot time is invalidated because he stopped moving during the trot. The slowest non-injury related trot was 33.39 seconds by David Ortiz.

The single-quickest trot tracked belongs to Billy Hamilton, a minor leaguer who completed an inside-the-park home run in 13.8 seconds. In the majors, the quickest trot ever belongs to Dee Gordon  at 13.89 seconds, whose inside-the-park home run was ruled an error.
