One night after Carlos Gomez gave us his blistering 16-second trot, David Ortiz tried to top him in the only way he knows how. It was glorious. Let’s get to the trots!

There were only 13 home runs around the league yesterday, but they packed a punch — especially if you like ’em quick. Let’s get to the trots!
The real Opening Day finally arrived yesterday and it was glorious! In thirteen games, we had 24 home runs running the gamut — a two-homer game, a quick trot or two, and even an extra-innings walkoff. Hard to ask for more than that. Let’s get to the trots!
It’s the first day of the baseball season! But the Dodgers are already 2-1. And the Padres are 1-0. And the D-Backs are 0-2. Welcome to Opening Day 2014, I guess. Not that I’m complaining. Baseball is baseball and it’s just fantastic to know that it’s back. Here’s a quick rundown of the tater trots […]
It’s been very quiet around here throughout the off-season (and a bit before then, I suppose), but that’s finally about to change. And with the 2014 season just around the corner, what better time to do so! As you can see, the site has undergone a nice redesign that should make things move faster. It’s […]
The tater trot tracker is a bit behind as I prepare for my wedding this weekend. Many apologies for that. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up at some point. But let’s get down to why we’re here today. Home Run of the Day: Jose Fernandez, Miami Marlins – 28.58 seconds [video] A 21-year-old superstar […]
Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Marlon Byrd, Pittsburgh Pirates – 24.2 seconds [video] In his first game as a member of the Pirates, Marlon Byrd crushed this over the center field fence. Pittsburgh fans were more than appreciative, making Byrd come out for a curtain call as the Pirates […]
A lot happened over the last three days to skip over, so let's get right to the weekend's trots! Home Run of the Day: Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers (Friday) – 30.94 seconds [video] With this monster of a blast off a just-called up Daisuke Matsuzaka, Miguel Cabrera became the second player this year (and 7th […]

With a long (long) blast down the third-base line in New York’s Citi Field — off the just-called up Daisuke Matsuzaka, no less — Miguel Cabrera has given us the second thirty-second trot of the 2013 season! Way to go, Miggy! The trot officially clocked in at 30.94 seconds. Here’s how it came about: Cabrera […]
Let's get right to the trots! Your browser does not support iframes. Home Run of the Day: Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers – 16.98 seconds [video] This pinch-hit home run is a thing of beauty. The only thing that could have made it better was if the ball slammed into the home run sculpture out […]
Once again, I must make apologies for the intermittent Tater Trot Tracker posts. Things have been fairly busy recently (and will probably be through the wedding next month). Please bear with me. Now let's get to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Hector Sanchez, San Francisco Giants – 24.26seconds [video] Ninth inning, two outs, […]
Let's get right to the trots! Home Run of the Day: Carlos Corporan, Houston Astros – 20.23 seconds [video] This blast broke up Yu Darvish's no-hit bid in the eighth inning. Corporan sprinted hard around the bases, but his trot clocked in at more than 20 seconds thanks to the moments he took admiring the […]
Two players hit their first career home runs on Thursday. That's happened before, of course, but I don't think it happens outside of September all too often. Of course, one of the players who did so was on the Marlins, so that almost certainly skews the results… Let's get to the trots! Home Run of […]
