Some Yankee 60-Yard Dash Times

In light of the NFL Scouting Combine, where college players that have entered the draft have a tryout testing their agility, speed, and strength, I thought I’d do some research on some of the Yankees’ old 60-yard times (60 yards is 180 feet, ie the length of two bases). The average MLB 60-yard time is about 6.8-7.0 seconds.

Brett Gardner (College Freshman): 6.6

Derek Jeter (High School) 6.6

Greg Golson (High School) 6.4

Curtis Granderson (High School) 6.6

Slade Heathcott (High School) 6.7

Jamie Hoffman (College) 6.65

Austin Romine (High School) 6.7

Alex Rodriguez (High School) 6.5

I’m pretty positive Jeter can’t run a 6.6 anymore, and Alex can’t run a 6.5 (assumptions of course). But I wouldn’t be surprised if Gardner can run around a 6.3 by now.

    Know a guy who was in spring training with ARod back when he first went to Texas and said ARod wasn't a sub 7 second 60 then and he was pretty sure he had never been sub 7 in the 60. I question the validity of alot of these times. If a guys time is fast, the finger on the stopwatch gets quicker.
