Adam LaRoche also had a pretty slow trot, coming in at 25.76 seconds on his first home run of the day.
Wow. Twenty home runs across the league, and not a single sub-twenty second trot. It’s the first time since April 22 that’s been the case, and by far the slowest trot of all “quickest trots” this year.
