Mike Trout is from Millville, New Jersey and grew up less than an hour from Philadelphia. Last night was the first time he has played a professional game against the Phillies in Philadelpha and his home town turned out in droves. It’s estimated that between 4,000 – 8,000 people from Millville came to the game and attendance at the stadium increased by about 12,000 over a typical Tuesday night.
