As we work ourselves back into the baseball season, I believe it is time to deluge into the best players in the game today. Who better to start with than The Millville Meteor himself, Mike Trout.
Trout is entering his seventh season with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and looks to continue his dominance of major league pitching. Coming off his MVP season, Trout seems to be picking up right where he left off, batting .300 in the first eight games and leading the Angels to an early AL West lead.
Best put, we are watching history through Trout’s career. His work ethic is second to none, and we are watching a legend play the game the right way. Trout grew up in a small town in New Jersey, Millville, where he is already hailed as the savior of the town, with the local baseball field called Mike Trout Field. His 1.2 million followers on instagram show his big following and his superhero like figure allows for the 25 year old to mentor many young children.
The world of baseball for a period of time lacked a superstar to take them into the 21st century. Now with Trout, we now know the game is in great hands.
