Tater Trot Tracker

Trot Times for August 18

by Larry Granillo

Forty-four home runs were hit on Saturday across the league. Clearly, ballplayers don't take the weekend off.

Let's go to the trots!

Home Run of the Day: Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins - 22.64 seconds [video]
No, it wasn't another 494-foot blast. What it was was the sixth straight game at Coors Field Stanton has hit a home run. The number of games Stanton has ever played in at Coors Field? Six.

Slowest Trot: Adam Dunn, Chicago White Sox - 25.91 seconds [video]
The other candidate for Home Run of the Day. This was the 35th home run of the year for Dunn (who had only 11 last year) and the 400th of his career. It was also a shot into the fountains at Kauffman Stadium. Not a bad way to celebrate a milestone.

Quickest Trot: Curtis Granderson, New York Yankees - 17.76 seconds [video]
An impressive sprint from Granderson on his 32nd home run of the season. The next quickest trot of the day was only 19.25 seconds, from Chicago's David DeJesus.
