So, did anything happen in the baseball world yesterday? I think I might have missed it…

How about some trots!

Home Run of the Day: Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners [video]
Sorry, but there is no way I can justify placing a run-of-the-mill home run over King Felix's perfect game here. I could watch that final strike to Sean Rodriguez over and over again. In fact, maybe I will.

Slowest Trot: Delmon Young, Detroit Tigers – 25.52 seconds [video]
The best thing about this home run is the pair of twin brothers who end up snagging the ball. It's not something you expect to see in your home run highlights, I suppose. Young beats out Adam Dunn's 399th career tater trot by nearly a second for the slowest trot of the day.

Quickest Trot: Scott Rolen, Cincinnati Reds – 18.24 seconds [video]
Even when it feels like Rolen is slowly moving around the bases, he's still good enough for the quickest trot of the day. Mike Trout, at 19.7 seconds, and Andrew McCutchen, at 19.97 seconds, are the only other two trotters to come in below 20 seconds.
