This biography of the American baseball player Mike Trout will detail his childhood, baseball career, and what one can expect from “The Millville Meteor” in the future.
Brief Biography of Mike Trout Section I: The Childhood of Mike Trout
Mike Trout was born in Millville, New Jersey. His father had some baseball talent, and was a fifth-round draft selection in 1983. Mike Trout went to Millville Senior High School, and excelled as a pitcher and as a shortstop. After he graduated from high school, he went to East Carolina University. It should also be noted in this biography that Trout received a baseball scholarship for his success at Millville High.
Brief Biography of Mike Trout Section II: Life as a top-tier prospect
Despite the success he had in high school and in college, Mike Trout was selected as the 25th overall player in the 2009 MLB Draft, which also featured Stephen Strasburg. According to Baseball America, before the 2010 MLB season, Trout was the 85th best baseball player in the minor leagues. He ended up proving his critics wrong before he reached the big leagues. In fact, notable baseball scout Keith Law ended up ranking Trout as the best prospect in 2011.
Brief Biography of Mike Trout Section III: Has an outstanding rookie season
This biography should note that Mike Trout had an outstanding rookie season in 2012. He was unanimously voted as the best rookie in the American League, and won a number of awards, including the Heart and Hustle Award. Trout was also a candidate for American League Most Valuable Player, but lost to Miguel Cabrera.
I should also note in this biography that many baseball players and managers were amazed by Trout’s talent during his rookie season. For instance, Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge spoke highly of the outfielder. Wedge stated, “He’s one of the best young hitters I’ve ever seen, arguably one of the best young players of all time. He is short to the ball with a lot of power and strength, the quickness he has out of the box and base paths, the way he is able to track the ball along with a pretty good arm and very athletic. He is an unbelievable young baseball player right now.”
Brief Biography of Mike Trout Section IV: His season in 2013 was another remarkable one
The 2013 MLB season was another great one for Mike Trout. He played in 157 games and recorded eye-dropping statistics. At the end of the season, Mike Trout had scored 109 runs, hit 27 home runs, and collected 190 hits. For his unbelievable season, he received his second Silver Slugger Award, and was named the MLB Player of the Year by Baseball America.
Brief Biography of Mike Trout Section V: What to Expect from the slugger in the future
At the time of writing this biography, Mike Trout is only 22-years-old. He is already considered the best baseball player according to many baseball experts. I believe that he will be elected to many more All-Star Games, receive a number of Gold Glove Awards, and hit his way to the Hall of Fame. If he continues to play at such a high level and avoid injuries, Trout’s career could end up being compared to the careers of Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth.
