David Ortiz Sets Record for Slowest Home Run Trot Around the Bases

[mlbvideo id="31954343" width="600" height="336" /]

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz managed to set a new record for slow on Wednesday evening by taking 32.91 to round the bases after hitting a three-run home run. According to Wezen-ball.com's Tater Trot Tracker, this was the slowest base trot ever recorded.

The previous record for slowest walk around the bases belonged to Bobby Abreu, who posted a 31.56 second jog in 2012.

Ortiz's glacial pace was compounded by an especially long stare down of the ball as it flirted with the right field foul pole in Fenway.

Ortiz has regularly dominated the slowest home run trot list, having 7 of the 10 slowest times in Major League Baseball last season.
