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).
