The Mike Trout Report: A Daily Look a Millville’s MVP
Back in November, the Baseball Writers Association of America announced that Trout won the 2014 American League MVP award.
He won the award unanimously, after finishing second behind Miguel Cabrera in the 2012 and 2013 MVP voting but finally got the award this year after batting .287 while belting a career-high 36 homers while driving in 111 runs. Trout also was awarded the Hank Aaron award, acknowledging the American League's best hitter for 2014.
So can Trout top his 2014 and bring home another MVP title? We will track his progress everyday with the Trout Report here on 973espn.com and during the Sports Bash daily at 2:45.
