Today we’re doing a shout out to Jersey Boy Mike Trout! Mike plays for the Angels (who knows what city they are really in!) and was named the 2012 American League Rookie of the Year and won a Silver Slugger Award! You go, Mike!
2013 was another awesome year for Mike when he again won the Silver Slugger Award and finished second in the voting for American League MVP.
Mike was born in Vineland, NJ and attended Milville High School in NJ. That’s why his nickname is the “Milville Meteor”, especially since Mike also had a league record for stolen bases in 2012.
