Time for the weekend! Let's get right to the trots.

Home Run of the Day: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels - 19.38 seconds [video]
Coming immediately on the heels of a successful suicide squeeze (successful thanks to a missed tag by AJ Ellis), Angels Stadium was already rocking when Trout took the first pitch he saw deep over the centerfield wall to give the Angels a late lead over the Dodgers. The crowd's euphoria only grew.

Slowest Trot: Bobby Abreu, Los Angeles Dodgers - 25.5 seconds [video]
An early home run off of Dan Haren gave the Dodgers a 3-0 lead. I'd say that Abreu was just moving at his typical speed around the bases, but his last tater trot this season was in the 22-second range. The next slowest trot was at 24.15 seconds from Miguel Olivo.

Quickest Trot: Chris Heisey, Cincinnati Reds - 17.86 seconds [video]
When I noticed yesterday that Heisey and Scott Rolen had both hit early home runs in the Reds game, I tweeted that I was predicting a combined tater trot time for the two of less than 36 seconds. After all, they are two of my favorite trotters and always pull out 17-18 second trots. Heisey was slowed down a bit by the runner on first, but was still able to trot home in 17.86 seconds. Rolen wasn't too far behind him, coming home in only 17.93 seconds. Combined, they were on the bases for 35.79 seconds. That means Heisey and Rolen could have run back-to-back trots nearly a full second quicker than John Buck's single unofficial trot earlier in the week.
