Trot Times for May 5, 2015

Let’s get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Carlos Perez, Los Angeles Angels – 20.03 seconds [video]
So did you ever dream of playing in the major leagues? And did you ever act out what might happen in your big league debut? Your first chance facing down a big league pitcher, proving your mettle? Did you ever imagine yourself being the hero of the day and hitting a walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth? Because that’s just what happened to Carlos Perez. Amazing.

Slowest Trot: Adrian Gonzalez, Los Angeles Dodgers – 26.07* seconds [video]
A big blast for Gonzalez (his 9th of the year) gives us the slowest trot of the day. To be honest, there’s a good chance it was even slower than the time noted here. The camera cuts away from Gonzalez a bit too early for me to know exactly when he stepped on home, so the time could easily be a bit higher.

Quickest Trot: Kelly Johnson, Atlanta Braves – 19.17 seconds [video]
Johnson is joined by Alex Avila and Kyle Blanks for the only trots to clock in faster than 20 seconds on Tuesday.
