Mike Trout is something else.
Trout is an elite hitter and always seems to come through in the clutch when he is needed.
That said, sometimes that can mean different things.
It could be a simple base-hit, a sacrifice fly, or a home run.
But one thing is for sure.
Trout is a walking legend.
Last night, he showed off his elite abilities yet again.
However, it was almost by accident.
Somehow, someway, he legged out a triple on a check swing!

Accidentally The GOAT
When you’re so good that you can accidentally leg out a triple on a pitch where you checked your swing, that’s something else.
Trout is a freak of nature when it comes to playing baseball and everything he can do while on the field.
This is something that you don’t see every day and something that you probably won’t ever see again.
How does one leg out a triple on a check swing, you ask?
Well, a lot of luck has to be had, and Trout certainly had that.
The ball didn’t even travel that far, but Trout is so fast and has such a unique skillset that it doesn’t matter how hard or how far he hits a ball.
You can always expect him to hustle and run it out.
That’s the kind of ballplayer he is and always has been.
A check-swing triple is a first for many fans and is quite entertaining to see.
Again, it likely won’t happen again for a very long time at least, but it’s cool to see something rare like that happen.
