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

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! 🙂
