Tater Trot Tracker

Trot Times for June 4

by Larry Granillo

Monday may have been Draft Day, but there was still plenty of games happening for those who like to watch big leaguers actually play baseball. In the seven games around the league, fifteen home runs were hit.

Let's get right to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Allen Craig, St. Louis Cardinals - 25.73 seconds [video]
Scott Hairston tied the game up with a pinch hit home run for the Mets only the inning before, but Craig walks away with the Home Run of the Day because his blast ultimately proved to be the game winner. In Los Angeles of Anaheim, Kendrys Morales made his pitch for this honor with two home runs off the Mariners pitching staff.

Slowest Trot: Allen Craig, St. Louis Cardinals - 25.73 seconds [video]
Craig's go-ahead homer was also the slowest trot of the day, beating out Oakland's Kila Ka'aihue by nearly a second-and-a-half. The slow trot was partially due to Craig watching the home run fly from home plate.

Quickest Trot: Kyle Seager, Seattle Mariners - 18.64 seconds [video]
Only one of two trots to come in under 20-seconds on Monday, beating out Mike Moustakas by a second.
