Congrats to the Angels All-Stars!
Mike Trout is the marquee announcement this week in his rookie year. Trout wasn't even on the fan ballot when the year began as he played in the minors. Now, Mike Trout is the youngest player in Angels history and the seventh-youngest position player in American League history to be named an All-Star.
The five-tool Trout outfielder was one of four Angels players selected for next week's Midsummer Classic in Kansas City when rosters were unveiled via the MLB All-Star Selection Show Sunday. Joining him as a reserve on the American League roster, managed by Rangers skipper Ron Washington, will be outfielder Mark Trumbo, along with pitchers Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson.
"It's awesome getting picked," the 20-year-old Trout said. "I'm getting chills thinking about it right now. Getting to represent the Angels, having Trumbo make it and C.J. and Weave, it's great", Trout told Alden Gonzalez this week.
We watch with high expectations for Mike Trout from Angels Radio AM 830 to see what unfolds as the young star continues to gain attention for his hard work and tremendous skill set. Congrats Mike!
