Angels Radio history was made in Huly of 2011 on KLAA Radio as 19 year old Mike Trout connects with his first major league home run in a key at bat for locking in another series win for the Los Angeles Angels over the Baltimore Orioles in 100+ degree Maryland weather.

Angels Radio history was made in July of 2011 on Angels Radio as 19 year old Mike Trout connects with his first major league home run in a key at bat for locking in another series win for the Los Angeles Angels over the Baltimore Orioles in 100+ degree Maryland weather.  Mike Trout is the Angels top young prospect and arrived in the major leagues for the first time only a few games before his first home run left the field of play in 2011. Here are some facts about baseball prospect Mike Trout.

Mike Trout was born in the city of Millville, New Jersey.  His birth day is August 7th and it will be interesting to note if he is still in the major leagues to celebrate on the field to take on the Seattle Mariners at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.

Three weeks after being called up to the Angels Mike Trout sent out his first four bagger in the eights inning in Baltimore. With the homer Trout secured a win for fellow rookie pitcher, Tyler Chatwood, the youngest in the league.  These two are just a part of the young impact players that comprise the Angels baseball lineup which is among the youngest in the league.

He started his professional baseball career in 2009 when he played for the Arizona League Angels. Trout was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels 25th overall in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft and was not expected to arrive in the major leagues in 2011. During that period he stunned scouts and fans by hitting .360 with one home run, 25 runs batted in and 13 stolen bases in 164 at bats over a span of 39 games. He finished the season playing for the Cedar Rapids Kernels, hitting .267 over 15 at bats in five games for that club.

While he is facing pitchers for the first time in the top professional ranks Trout has struggled at the plate to catch up with the speed of pro baseball.  His outfield tending has been suitable and has made some nimble approaches to nab difficult outs.  His fellow center fielder Peter Bourjos will likely remain the long term starter now that he has returned from injury and appears to be enar full blazing speed.

Still the experience in 2011 for Mike Trout will be beneficial for his continued career development.  This young man has a bright future ahead of him and talent to carry him far.
