MK: “Ortiz hit a home run over the Pesky Pole yesterday against the Texas Rangers. And there’s a website that clocked him at over 32-seconds. That is the longest home run trot in the history of baseball. Now a lot of it was spent in the batter’s box watching to see if it would stay fair but he certainly didn’t pick up the pace as he rounded the bases.
Now it was tracked by Larry Granillo’s Tater Trot Tracker and he’s actually been logging home run trot times since 2010. It is the longest non-injury trot in that span.”
JF: “Non injury trot? What, did you pull a hammy running around second on a home run?”
MK: “Flyball the other way and out of play.”
JF: “Larry clearly has a little too much time on his hands, doesn’t he. Wow!”
MK: “*laughter* He runs the Tater Trot Tracker site so there’s a lot of work in that.”
JF: “Got our attention!”
This is one of the challenges in the umpire game of Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball. It’s pretty fun.

Leela: “Face it, Fry, baseball was as boring as mom and apple pie. That’s why they jazzed it up.”
Fry: “Boring? Baseball wasn’t…hmm, so they finally jazzed it up.”
On September 11, Gattis launched a home run off of Miami Marlins rookie sensation Jose Fernandez at Marlins Park, the ball traveled at a speed of 106 mph off the bat and into the left field stands before hitting a fan in the crotch 411 feet away. The fan winced over in pain and reportedly lost a shoe in the incident.
