The Design: Since arriving in the ‘big leagues’ at the ripe old age of 19 in 2011, Michael Nelson Trout has been compared to a number of different baseball Hall of Famers (most notably, Mickey Mantle). Trout is one of those rare finds that has excelled because of the tools he possesses: hit for average, hit for power, incredible defender, terrific arm and blazing speed. While those attributes are found in other rare players from time to time, Trout has stood out because of the astonishing numbers he’s put up in his first 8+ plus seasons of Major League Baseball. Since 2012, Trout has racked up the honors at an amazing pace: Rookie of the Year, 3 Most Valuable Player Awards (4 - 2nd place finishes), 7 Silver Slugger Awards, 8 All-Star appearances and 2 All Star Game MVPs. The Millville, New Jersey native was the 25th overall selection by the Los Angeles Angels in 2009 after his All-American caliber senior season at Millville High School, where he hit .531 with 18 home runs in 81 at-bats. He would arrive in the big leagues for the first time just 2 years later, playing in 40 games with the Halos in 2011. The rest as they say, is history. While the moniker, ‘The Millville Meteor’, would come to be known after his high school days, it seems to fit Trout and his style of play. Like Mantle, who was known as ‘The Commerce Comet’ (Mantle was a native of Commerce, Oklahoma), it’s difficult to encapsulate the player with one particular word. We think ‘The Millville Meteor’ does just that for Trout…besides, we love the fact a player of his talents has a wonderful old-school nickname. 🐐approved!
