When Millville high school graduate Mike Trout joined me on the Sports Bash two years ago he was getting ready for his high school prom,  two years later he got a base hit in the Major League Baseball All-Star game.

For a 20-year old kid, the past two years have been a whirl-wind from Millville High safety, basketball forward and outfielder to LA Angels savior and All-Star he has made South Jersey proud.  He electrifies the TV set almost nightly, generates web hits, sells newspapers and appears to be just a great kid.

Best wishes to Mike Trout (@Trouty20) from 97.3 ESPN and the Sports Bash on a wonderful expericane at the 2012 MLB All-Star game, South Jersey is proud of you!
