One of the Youngest Players Doin’ it: Trout’s Time
There are few guys in the MLB tearing up the game like Angels centerfielder Mike Trout. Not only is the 21-year-old the youngest player to join the 20-40 club , but he’s also showing promise for other pro accolades.
In Lyle Spencer’s article for MLB.com, he writes:
Trout, who turned 21 on Aug. 7, has a legitimate shot at assembling a postseason hardware collection unprecedented in the game’s history: the American League Rookie of the Year Award and the AL Most Valuable Player Award; a Rawlings Gold Glove Award in center field; a Louisville Silver Slugger Award; AL batting champion; and steals and runs scored kingpin.
American League MVP, anyone?
Oh, turns out Trouty20 tries to live up to his name, too.
