On September 28, 2012, Bobby Abreu, in what looks to be his final career home run, blasted a shot down the right field line in Dodger Stadium. After strutting out of the box, Abreu took his sweet time rounding the bases. Vin Scully even said, after Abreu rounded second, "And Bobby's going to take his time and enjoy the ride."
Abreu's trot ended up clocking in at 31.56 seconds. It was the slowest trot in the Tater Trot Tracker era that was not the result of an injury.
(For a look at the other 30-second trotters, see this post on Bobby Abreu's slow trot.)
Thursday afternoon, Colorado's Todd Helton put himself in a virtual tie with Abreu for slowest non-injury related trot with a 31.54 second trot off of San Francisco's Matt Cain in Coors Field.
