VIDEO: Statcast tracks Mike Trout’s RBI triple from Tuesday night’s 2014 MLB All-Star Game

Jul 16, 2014, 8:01 PM EST

Statcast, the new 3D tracking technology from MLB Advanced Media, gives us this unique look at Mike Trout‘s first-inning RBI triple from Tuesday night’s MLB All-Star Game …

The speed and smoothness with which Trout rounds the bases is incredible. He’s a jet-fueled tracing compass. The 22-year-old was named the All-Star Game MVP in the American League’s 5-3 victory.

    Great play by puig

    If you look, Jeter keeps his pace ahead of him. Impressive at his age.

      Except Jeter started on second and got to home at the same time Trout got to third. But, yeah, impressive at his age.

        To be fair, Jeter was making sure the ball was not caught before he took off.

    Joe gold. Jeter had to wait and see if puig was going to catch the ball. Trout was at first base by the time Jeter took off.

      pause it at 22 seconds when trout hits first. jeters almost halfway to third. if you pause it again when jeter hits home, trouts sliding into third. jeter didn’t really keep pace, but he didn’t really fall behind. not impressive or unimpressive either way

    If Puig didn’t “Bobby Abreu” that ball, it would have been caught.

    Like any fan I love to see great players in baseball, but Mike Trout needs some post-season play and production before he’s anointed anything. Tons of great players have been machines during the regular season but never produced in the playoffs or rarely made post-season appearances. I hope Anaheim gets in this year so he can put on a show, but until then I’ll wait to give him a crown.

      And tons of great players did very little in the playoffs because they were great players on crappy teams. Ted Williams, Tony Gwynn, Harmon Killebrew, Walter Johnson. You could find a lot more than that. The best pure hitter (likely) in the history of the game could only drag his team into the playoffs once.

      I don’t see how you can make that a criterion. Maybe at basketball, but it takes 25 baseball players to get to the playoffs.
