Trot Times for July 22, 2013

Well, that All-Star break went on a little longer over here at the Tater Trot Tracker than it should have. I have a good excuse! I'm still stuck in the rain delay at the Wrigley Field Pearl Jam concert! (That's okay. It was awesome.) The rest of the weekend's trots will come soon enough. Let's […]

The First “Half” in Leaders of 2013

Well, it's not exactly the first "half," but we find ourselves at the All-Star break nonetheless. And though things haven't been quite as exciting on the basepaths this year (especially in the inside-the-park category), there have been a number of notable trotters to fill the time. Listed below are the ten quickest and ten slowest […]

Trot Times for July 11, 2013

A quick little day for home runs, so let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Josh Phegley, Chicago White Sox – 20.82 seconds [video] There's an episode of "Parks and Rec" where Ron becomes so obsessed with the shoe shines that Andy gives that he ends up, ahem, taking it a […]

Trot Times for July 10, 2013

Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Hanley Ramirez, Los Angeles Dodgers – 26.88 seconds [video] I usually reserve the Home Run of the Day for the most momentous homer around the league, whether it's a walkoff or a huge blast or what. Sometimes, though, I just have to give it […]

Trot Times for July 9, 2013

Apologies for being away these last couple of days. The missing trots will be filled in soon. Meanwhile, we get to deal with today's trots, which include ten home runs from the Cubs and Red Sox combined (not to mention multiple home run games from Dayan Viciedo, Kendrys Morales, and Adrian Beltre). Let's get to […]

Trot Times for July 6, 2013

It was a hot one around the country yesterday, helping lead us to a nice 38-homer day. We can probably expect more of the same today. Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Josh Hamilton, Los Angeles Angels – 18.93* seconds [video] Down by four with two outs in the ninth […]

Trot Times for July 4, 2013

There were certainly some fireworks going off yesterday around the league! /lamepuns Let's get to the trots. Home Run of the Day: Wilson Ramos, Washington Nationals – 24.57 seconds [video] I may have been tempted to put Adam Dunn's walkoff blast in this spot, but then I was afraid of subjecting you to a Hawk […]

Trot Times for July 3, 2013

Fireworks are calling. Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Jason Kipnis, Cleveland Indians – N/A seconds [video] It's almost unheard of to have an inside-the-park home run and be able to get a reliable time for the trot. Even if the camera doesn't follow the batter-runner perfectly around the bases […]

Trot Times for July 1, 2013

A short day on Monday means we only have a few trots to look at today. Let's get to it! Home Run of the Day: Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals – 17.49 seconds [video] Two pitches into his return to the lineup after missing a month on the DL, Bryce Harper reminded everyone why they missed […]

Trot Times for June 29, 2013

Forgive me, but I'm in the middle of watching Patrick Swayze kick some ass in Road House. We'll have to get right to the trots. Home Run of the Day: Pedro Alvarez, Pittsburgh Pirates – 24.03 seconds [video] The Pirates beat the Brewers 2-1 off of two solo home runs for their 50th win of […]

Trot Times for June 28, 2013

Let's make this quick. To the trots! Home Run of the Day: Prince Fielder, Detroit Tigers – 24.39 seconds [video] Check that catwalk! After Prince hit it with this blast, it may not be stable enough for use anymore! In Oakland, Stephen Vogt finally managed his first career hit after an 0-for-32 start to his […]

Trot Times for June 26, 2013

The Red Sox are playing their 81st game of the year today, officially marking us at the middle of the season. How in the world did that happen? Let's get to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Raul Ibanez, Seattle Mariners – 20.04 seconds [video] The 18th home run of the year for 41-year-old […]

Trot Times for June 23, 2013

A hot, humid weekend means we get a few dingers around the league. Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Kendrys Morales, Seattle Mariners – 26.88 seconds [video] Kendrys Morales once missed nearly two full years in the big leagues when, after a walkoff grand slam, he broke his leg at […]

Trot Times for June 21, 2013

Welcome to summer! Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Edwin Encarnacion, Toronto Blue Jays – 22.51 seconds [video] Let's all admire Encarnacion's blast with as much enthusiasm as he did himself. There were also two first-career home runs hit last night, as Toronto fan favorite Munenori Kawasaki and Yankees rookie […]

Trot Times for June 20, 2013

Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Carlos Pena, Houston Astros – 26.92* seconds [video] A monster of a home run for Pena as the Astros walkoff against the Brewers in the tenth inning. The remarkable thing about this trot isn't how slow it feels, but the fact that it's a) […]
