Trot Times for June 5, 2015

Hey, did you know June 5 is the 30th anniversary of Ferris Bueller’s trip to Wrigley Field? It’s kind of a big deal.

Now let’s get to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins – 20.99 seconds [video]
StatCast called this home run 478 feet. Hit Tracker Online called it 484 feet. I call it a bomb.

Slowest Trot: Brett Lawrie, Oakland Athletics – 25.03* seconds [video]
This one might be unfair, as the video cuts back to Lawrie a step or two past home plate. It’s possible, then, that Mark Teixeira, at 24.74 seconds, had the day’s longest trot.

Quickest Trot: Jean Segura, Milwaukee Brewers – 18.08 seconds [video]
A leadoff home run in the top of the first is all Segura needed to earn the day’s quickest trot. It’s a small victory for the Brewers, but, hey, they need all the victories they can get!
