Ever since he burst onto the scene in 2012 and won the American League Rookie of the Year Award, he has been one of the best players in all of baseball.
He’s a five-tool guy who can do just about anything when he steps out onto a baseball field.
Now, he’s made a little history.
With his two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning in last night’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays, he claimed the lead on the list for the most home runs ever hit at Angel Stadium.

Trout Makes History
When you think of the Angels these days, Shohei Ohtani is who comes into your mind first.
However, Trout is the franchise guy.
He’s the veteran on the Angels’ roster and has been around the longest of any of them.
So it’s no surprise to see him at the top of the list of the most home runs ever hit at Angel Stadium.
But it is nice to see him make some history.
Trout has been embraced by not only Angels fans, but all baseball fans across the league.
He’s a role model and ambassador for the sport who just so happens to be one of the best pure hitters of all time.
His power is rivaled by few in the game today.
He and Ohtani form a deadly one-two punch in that Angels lineup.
But Trout is a well-rounded superstar who has been at this for a long time.
He’s no stranger to making history and is on his way to make some more.
