The Angels have released their list of promotional stadium giveaways for 2017. The list includes several Mike Trout themed items including 4 Trout bobbleheads. Plus a set of Mike Trout socks and a Rookie of the Year blanket featuring Mike Trout and Tim Salmon.
Mike Trout is the best player in baseball. He needs a nickname that people will use (Millville Meteor hasn’t really caught on). Let’s help him establish himself in our cultural lore. Give Trout a new nickname! These options were based on fan suggestions found here.

Mike Trout spent a little time with the media this morning in his first press conference at Spring Training. He talked about the surprise of winning his second MVP award, his off season workouts, meeting new teammates, saying goodbye to Jered Weaver as a teammate, spending the upcoming season with his fiance and their dog Juno, and the desire to make the playoffs.
It’s clear that Trout is beginning to see himself as a veteran presence in the clubhouse. What might be the most comforting part of the press conference is seeing that he’s still nervous talking to the press. Those legs were JITTERY. He’s mortal! 🙂
