Mike Trout’s 26th Birthday Bash

Mike Trout’s only added to his legend by putting on a show for his 26th birthday. The party started before the game when his teammates gave him their traditional birthday shower. It looks like he got hit with some eggs, an Icee, hot sauce and some dry ice.

Then in the game Mike Trout achieved his 1,000 career hit. He’s only the 10th player in American League history to reach the feat before his age 26 season.

Mike Trout, 1,000 career hits by his 26th birthday

If that wasn’t enough he followed with his typical trend of hitting a home run on his birthday. This is the fourth time in six years that Thunder Trout has gone yard to celebrate his big day. He’s the youngest player to achieve the feat. He’s just two dingers behind Alex Rodriguez for most birthday home runs (6).

Two Seven turns Two Six

August 7th means one thing, it’s Mike Trout’s Birthday.  He turns 26 years old today. To top it off he’s on the cusp on hitting his 1,000 career hit in tonight’s game.  It should be quite a party at the Big A.

Happy Birthday Mike Trout

Check out this sweet video MLB put togehter of where he’s at in baseball history.

1,000 Hits by 26

 

Mike Trout’s Birthday is on Monday, August 7th. He turns 26 years old.  There are two things to watch for as his birthday approaches.  The first is that he somehow always hits a home run on his birthday.  If you’re going to the game try to sit in the outfield seats, you might catch a birthday home run ball.

The second is that he is only 8 hits away from reaching the 1,000-Career-Hit plateau. He plays 5 games leading up to his birthday.  It’s possible that he reaches that significant mark on his birthday.  He just needs a couple of multi-hit games between now and then.

Rehab Game Interview

Mike Trout is playing his second rehab game for the IE 66ers tonight. Before the game he answered questions about how he’s feeling and how is game will change after experiencing the injury (spoiler alert: it won’t).

As you can tell his fans came out strong to see him. Continue reading Rehab Game Interview

First Time on the Disabled List

While stealing second base on Sunday, Mike Trout has a tear in the ucl tear of his left thumb. The injury will require Trout to go on the Disabled List for the first time in his career. Surgery is a possibility and he’s expected to miss anywhere from 4-8 weeks of playing time. Teammate Andrelton Simmons had a similar injury in 2016 and missed 5 weeks.

Walking Trout with the Bases Loaded

Terry Collins, the Mets manager, made some news last Sunday when he stated that he considered walking Mike Trout in the 9th inning with the bases loaded.  The Angels were down by three and Trout represented the winning run if he were able to swat a grand slam.  Instead, Addison Reed was able to limit Trout to a sacrifice fly and the Mets came away with a 7-5 victory. With Albert Pujols out of the lineup and the rest of the team struggling the idea was not without merit. This may be the ultimate sign of respect for Mike Trout as a hitter.
