The tater trots for April 23: the Upton brothers have a night, Chris Heisey keeps sprinting.

I'm really enjoying this new experiment by Major League Baseball to start the season in January and hope that nobody notices. I don't know if the Rockies' employees who have had to shuffle snow off the field twice in the last week are enjoying it as much, but it's still interesting in a performance art kind of way.

The tater trots from April 9: minor league Ramon Quinn gives us the real highlight of the day.

The Astros and Mariners combined for eight home runs on Tuesday. Yes, the Astros and Mariners. The Yankees and Indians combined for six more. In Washington, the White Sox and Nationals also hit six. These three games helped lead us to the first forty home run night of the season. Thanks, guys!

In honor of his 50th birthday, enjoy the first ever tater trot of baseball legend Michael Jordan.

Today is Michael Jordan's 50th birthday. In honor of such a major milestone in the life of one of the 20th century's most fascinating athletes, here is a reprint of a Tater Trot Tracker post originally published in 2010.

The tater trots from this week's LCS games. There haven't been many.

In a week full of League Championship Series games (and rainouts), there have been few home runs. In fact, in all games played Monday through Wednesday, there were a total of four home runs hit. The playoffs weren't exactly screaming for the Tater Trot Tracker this week. Things were better on Thursday, when the Tigers finished their four-game sweep of the Yankees and the Cardinals put themselves one game from the pennant with an 8-3 victory of San Francisco. The six home runs hit in Thursday's games more than double the homers hit the rest of the week. Thank God.

The tater trots for the first LCS weekend, including Game 5's from Friday. Bryce Harper comes through with the fastest tater trot recorded in the postseason.

When last we saw the Tater Trot Tracker, we still thought the Orioles and Nationals had a chance at meeting in the World Series. Two games and one incredible comeback later, both teams are eliminated - and now, after two more games in the Bronx, some are even wondering if the Yankees have a shot at the title.

The tater trots for October 1: Miguel Cabrera closes the refrigerator door...

It was a busy, busy weekend. On Friday, Bobby Abreu set the Tater Trot Tracker record for slowest non-injury-related trot. Then, on Saturday, Michael Morse set a record of his own, with one of the most bizarre grand slam trots you'll ever see. Morse's trot is also (likely) the longest trot by distance-traveled you or I have ever seen.

The trot times for Sept. 28, when Bobby Abreu has the slowest non-injury related trot recorded.

Apologies for the missing Tater Trot Tracker the last few days. The real world got pretty busy there for a few days. Luckily, it's a great day to return to the tracker because...

The tater trots from September 16 (and the weekend). Anthony Rizzo spoiled the Pirates day in a big way, Ryan Braun had his own big day.

After yesterday's games, there are now exactly two weekends of regular season baseball left. And, lucky for us, things are just now getting really interesting! With the recent poor play by Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, and St. Louis, we are on the verge of seeing three possible playoff teams choke in the final month of the season. Of course, a lot can happen in 17 games...

The tater trots for September 10. The Reds and Pirates play a long one, Buster Posey gets unlucky. Also includes the weekend's trots, including BJ Upton and Ryan Zimmerman.

The Tater Trot Tracker has been absent the past couple of days, so let's get right to the trots!

The tater trots for August 23: only eight home runs were hit on Thursday with five of them in one game.

There were eight games played across the league on Thursday. In those eight games, players hit eight home runs. Five of the home runs came in the ugly Angels/Red Sox game at Fenway Park. I can't say for sure, but this may be the fewest home runs I've ever seen on a single day since starting the Tater Trot Tracker.
