MLB Farewell Tour: David Ortiz vs Derek Jeter

Two years ago, future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter was making his final appearances at MLB stadiums across the nation. Fans far and wide were lining up at the gates of each American League ballpark and a handful of National League stadiums to see the career-long Yankee shortstop play in that particular city one final […]

Revisiting the new Miami Marlins This Season

The Miami Marlins made  moves this offseason.  They just recently signed Michael Morse away from the World Series champion San Francisco Giants to a two year, $16 million contract.  They’ve also bulked up the infield with the acquisition of shortstop Dee Gordon from the Los Angeles Dodgers.  And, they added Mat Latos from the Cincinnati Reds […]

Trot Times for April 15, 2014

Tax Day brought rain-outs to a quarter of the league, with four games washed out around the league. There might be a metaphor in there somewhere. Now let’s get to the trots!

Trot Times for April 14, 2014

It was a wacky day for Pennsylvania teams, as the Braves/Phillies and Pirates/Reds games accounted for 17 home runs. Scientists have tried to explain what happened, but they were all distracted by the lunar eclipse. Let’s get to the trots!

Trot Times for April 13, 2014

Busiest day of the season so far. With a full slate of Sunday games (and apparently some nice weather around the country), hitters slugged 42 home runs throughout the majors yesterday. Thankfully, a few of them were pretty special. One special trot not included below comes from Class A West Viriginia. Second-baseman Erich Weiss, of […]

Trot Times for April 12, 2014

This might be my favorite article on the Tater Trot Tracker that I’ve seen as the Wall Street Cheat Sheet runs down the six slowest (non-injury) trots of the Tater Trot Tracker-era. Now let’s get to the trots!

Trot Times for April 10, 2014

There were a lot of new visitors to the site yesterday as word spread about David Ortiz setting the record for slowest trot of the Tater Trot Tracker era. Glad to see everybody! Sadly, there wasn’t a whole lot going on in the tater trot world on the bases last night, but that’s to be […]

David Ortiz Sets the Record for Slowest Tater Trot

David Ortiz has always been near the top of the Tater Trot Tracker leaderboard with his classic Papi trots. In 2010, he was the first player to break the 30-second barrier. Since then, he has dominated the “Slowest Trot” lists every year. Last year, for example, Ortiz had 7 of the 10 slowest trots of […]

Trot Times for April 8, 2014

Five different multi-home run games yesterday, including Jose Abreu’s first (and second) career home runs and a pair of home runs from Corey Hart in his first game in front of Seattle fans. One slugger rose above them all, however. Let’s get to the trots!

Trot Times for April 7, 2014

We can blame the rain for there only being seven games around the majors on Monday, but the scarcity of home runs (only six throughout the league) will have to be blamed on something else. I suggest Miley Cyrus. Let’s get to the trots!
