Cool Papa Bell, the famous speedster who played in the Negro Leagues back in the 20's and 30's, still holds the unofficial record for fastest ballplayer to round the bases.
He was once clocked circling the bases in 11 seconds.
Thats the equivalent of 110 meters. To compare, the fastest sprinters who run the 100 meter dash in the Olympics average about 10 seconds in that event. But of course sprinters don't have to circle any bags or run in dirt.
a) How fast can you circle the bags (if you have the means to try it)
do u think any player today could beat that record?
