Millville’s Mike Trout on Cover of Sports Illustrated
The story continues to grow.
Millville High School graduate and current member of the Los Angles Angels Mike Trout has another accolade under his belt - he is on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.
Thus far in his rookie season in 100 games, Trout has a .344 average with 24 home runs, 70 RBI, 97 runs scored and 39 stolen bases.
The AL all-star is being compared to Mickey Mantle - who in his rookie season posted these numbers: .311, 23 home runs, 87 RBI, 94 runs scored in 142 games.
While I am not suggesting Trout is better then Mantle yet - his rookie season numbers dwarf "The Mick". It's this kind of story, this type of player that makes you proud of where you live, proud of where you're from.
