Mike Trout Continues to Make History, Added to Elite Company
Mike Trout is now a part of another club in MLB history. In the Angels loss against the Red Sox two days ago, Trout's first-inning double put him into some elite company. He became the fourth player all time with at least 300 career doubles, 300 career homers and 200 stolen bases by his age-31 season.
This club isn't only astounding due to the players Trout joined, but because of the sheer talent he has to accomplish this feat. Trout joins Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, and Willie Mays.
Trout's impressive career seems likely to be added to with another great season. His resume already speaks for itself, but in 2023, Trout is slashing .278/.435/.537 with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs. Added to the mix is 5 doubles.
Heading into 2023, Trout already has three AL MVP's and ten all-star selections on his resume and he'll for sure be in both of those conversations again this season. This is just another feat that Mike Trout added to his long line and will surely continue to make more history.
However, as everyone comes to expect, Trout's big night wasn't enough for Los Angeles to overcome Boston in their 9-7 loss at Fenway Park. The story continues as Trout's career continues to progress. He wows on his personal achievements but still hasn't had the chance to show what he could do in the postseason.
