Trot Times for July 20, 2015

The Angels duo of Trout and Pujols owned the day yesterday. Let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels – Game 2, #2 – 22.08 seconds [video]
It was quite the day for Albert Pujols. After homering in the afternoon game, the Angels slugger took it up a notch in the nightcap. His first homer of the game was the 548th of his illustrious career, tying him with all-time great Mike Schmidt for 15th on the career list. After watching his young teammate Mike Trout slug one of his own later in the game, Pujols bested himself by slugging his third home run of the day and moving past Schmidt with home run #549.

It was a pretty good day.

Slowest Trot: David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox – 28.91 seconds [video]
Watching the Trout/Pujols team from across the diamond, Big Papi had to get in on the action. He joined the party with a bomb to right field and an amazing bat toss/stand-and-stare at the plate. The trot clocked in at 28.91 seconds, which, all things considered, might have been quick.

Quickest Trot: Gregor Blanco, San Francisco Giants – 18.81 seconds [video]
Blanco’s quick trot was the only one to clock in on the better side of 20-seconds.
