Tater Trot Tracker

Trot Times for May 2

by Larry Granillo

A late Tater Trot Tracker, so it'll be brief tonight. Let's get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox - 27.0 seconds [video]
This spot doesn't always go to the person with the best home run trot - sometimes the home run itself is more important. Not Monday night, though. After Boston's David Ortiz hit a bomb into the Monster seats, he circled the bases at a fairly regular Big Papi pace. He touched home plate and, on his way to the Boston dugout, went out of his way to the two servicemen in the front row (who had thrown out the first pitch) and gave the first one a celebratory hug. Now that's a perfect way to celebrate a home run!

Slowest Trot: David Ortiz, Boston Red Sox - 27.0 seconds [video]
It's a rare day indeed where a 27-second trot doesn't give you the slowest trot of the day. Monday was not that day. There were three other trots in the 24-second range, though, which seems a bit high for a day where only 19 home runs were hit across the league.

Quickest Trot: Alex Avila #1, Detroit Tigers - 20.47 seconds [video]
This may be the first day of the year where not even a single player dipped below twenty-seconds during their trots. They don't happen very often, but they do happen. It was a slow day across the league, apparently.
