Congrats to Mike Trout on hitting his 100th career home run. Mike hit the milestone on Friday April 17th, 2015 in Houston against Roberto Hernandez. To put his accomplishment in perspective, Mike is the youngest player in history to hit 100 home runs and have 100 stolen bases. He beat out Alex Rodriquez to those combined milestones by almost 2 months. Before the season began I predicted he would reach this mark on this very day.
Then as if the milestone wasn’t enough, Mike added drama to the evening by hitting his 101st career home run to win the game. His second home run of the evening came against Chad Qualls. His second blast also gave him the distinction of being the youngest player to hit 101 home runs while stealing 101 stolen bases.
Trout has started the year off red hot with a hit in every single game of the season. After the first 10 games his batting average is .444
