This just in! Mike Trout can jump higher than you. I don't know you, but I know you can't jump as high as Mike Trout. Don't believe me? Allow me to present Exhibit A:
So, yeah. Suck it, you.
You only wish you could jump that high. This only lends more evidence to my claim that Mike Trout is Superman. They say Superman can leap over a building in a single bound and while this isn't a building, it is good enough proof for me.
Personally, I'm glad that Trout was just able to pull that stunt off because if he didn't land that jump, came crashing to the ground and blew out his knee, then that would be the dumbest injury ever, no?
Also, let's hope Mike Trout can get that contract extension soon so that he can get a video camera that as a resolution slightly better than what "Bigfoot found" videos are shot on.

Mike Trout is the next big thing in baseball and if it wasn’t for Miguel Cabrera having two insanely productive seasons in the AL he’d have 2 MVP awards at the age of 21.
In this video Trout is doing some off-season training and decides to film himself doing a standing vertical jump onto a 55+ inch plyometric box. Not many athletes would attempt this jump, let alone successfully land it.
Mike Trout is a supreme athlete. You already knew that. But it’s still pretty awesome to watch some of his athletic feats, such as him doing a ridiculous plyometric box jump during a recent workout.

Over the last few years, a common thought experiment among nerdy baseball fans has been to imagine what Mike Trout would sign for if he was a free agent. He was the best player in baseball before he could legally drink, and if the market had to price a player of his ability and youth, […]
An Angels outfield prospect with an ichthyological surname? Greatness must be sure to follow! Up next on our prospect countdown is Michael Fish who will look to carry on the great tradition that Mike Trout and Tim Salmon set before him.
