Trot Times for June 28, 2013

Let's make this quick. To the trots!


Home Run of the Day: Prince Fielder, Detroit Tigers – 24.39 seconds [video]
Check that catwalk! After Prince hit it with this blast, it may not be stable enough for use anymore!

In Oakland, Stephen Vogt finally managed his first career hit after an 0-for-32 start to his career. It just happened to find it's way over the fence. He sped home in 18.86 seconds. I'm surprised it was faster.

Slowest Trot: Ryan Raburn, Cleveland Indians – 24.62 seconds [video]
Only one small contribution to the Indians 19-10 victory over the White Sox in game one of their doubleheader. Raburn barely edges out Dioner Navarro (24.58 seconds) for the slowest trot of the day.

Quickest Trot: John Mayberry, Philadelphia Phillies – 18.0 seconds [video]
For the second day in a row, a Phillie has the quickest trot of the day. On Thursday, Chase Utley took the crown with his ~17.5 second trot. For Utley, he had no idea that the ball was over the fence until after rounding third base. He slowed down only a tad as he approached the umpire at home plate, still unsure (or a bit miffed) over the whole thing. See the trot.
