The folks over at Wezen-Ball have been timing every MLB home run trot this season. It’s a fun and interesting feature, and if you haven’t already you should definitely go here to check it out.
So far this season, David Ortiz holds six of the seven slowest trot times, while Adam Rosales has the three fastest (not counting inside-the-parkers).
But Wezen-Ball really ramped up the awesome meter today, posting video of a home run trot in the minor leagues that turned violent as the hero rounded the bases. Apparently, losing teams don’t appreciate being taunted non-stop during game-winning home run trots. Who knew?
Anyway, you can watch the video below, but for the whole story, head over to Wezen-Ball.
