PLAYERS: Mike Trout
TEAMS: Los Angeles Angels
Angels’ outfielder Mike Trout has been selected as the starting left fielder for the American League All-Star team, becoming the youngest Halos’ starter in history. Just another milestone in Trout’s young career as he was destined to make an appearance in New York. This will be his second All-Star game in as many Major League seasons as Trout played in last year’s All-Star game where he collected a hit and a stolen base against NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey. The 21-year-old is the only Angels player to make the roster this season, after four Halos were selected last season. Many thought second baseman Howie Kendrick would have a solid chance at at least making the Final Vote ballot, but that is unfortunately not the case.  This article has been read (0) times
