One of the fastest players in baseball scores inside-the-park home run in 14 seconds

Dee Gordon showed why he’s one of the fastest players in baseball with a blisteringly fast inside-the-park home run Tuesday night.

The Miami Marlins second baseman hit a shot to deep right center that would be a double or triple for most players, but instead scored a three-run inside-the-parker.

After the game, Larry Granillo of Tater Trot Tracker recorded the home run at 13.95 seconds, the fastest home run in the majors since 2010 (when he began tracking them).

Here’s a look at the home run. Gordon was helped by sloppy outfield defence by the Giants.


The MLB recorded Gordon’s run at 14.3 seconds. Either way, it’s blistering fast, and the best part is Gordon made it look effortless:

20.6 miles per hour!

It was Gordon’s first home run of the season, and ultimately the play that won the Marlins the game.
