Larry Granillo is the keeper of the Tater Trot Tracker, which keeps track of how long guys take on their home run trots. David Ortiz is one of the slowest trotters out there, but last night he took it to a new level, taking 32.91 seconds, setting an all-time record for a non-injured player. Or, at least, all-time since Larry has been keeping track. Go check out the trot and Larry’s analysis of it.
Papi is Papi so no one is gonna say anything about this (and he did have to watch to make sure the ball was fair given where he hit it) but if a young or unproven player trotted that slowly, you can imagine someone might get grumpy about it.
