This year’s All-Star game weekend was very entertaining in a great city of Cincinnati. This weekend provided a record number of home runs in the home run Derby with 159 and the hometown hero Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier became the second player to win in his home ballpark. A great build up to Tuesday night’s Midsummer classic that saw Angels superstar Mike Trout make MLB history by becoming the first player ever to win back-to-back All-Star MVPs!
Mike Trout continues to build an amazing legacy
A career that has just begun has everyone in awl of what he has already been able to accomplish. In just four years in the majors, he has not only become the face of the Angels he is must-see TV. In his short career, he is hitting .306 with 124 homers, 362 runs batted in and 111 stolen bases only being caught 18 times. He is not only a prolific offensive player he is not too shabby on the defensive side of the ball either ask Gordon Beckham, JJ Hardy, and Price Fielder just a few who have had home runs robbed by Trout. A five-tool player that is still getting better at his craft and he has already won the rookie of the year award and the MVP! If it weren’t for Miguel Cabrera he could have won three in a row. It is remarkable to think that he is just 23 years of age; I would say baseball in great hands!
He definitely has the baseball thing down, but he is an even better person staying humble through all the success he still thinks of fans and others before himself. Baseball was worried when Derek Jeter retired last season, but I don’t think they have to worry anymore! Mike Trout is going to continue to make MLB history and it’s going to be fun to watch, it’s great to see the youth infused in the game of baseball today and the leader of that pack is Mike Trout. Baseball just keeps getting better and better that is why it’s called America’s National Pastime!
