We have seen Angels superstar Mike Trout rob a few would-be home runs in the past, but this catch from last night belongs in a category by itself.
In the bottom of the eighth inning last night, the Mariners’ Kendrys Morales hit a laser to center field which Trout managed to overrun. That gave him no choice but to leap, put his glove behind his head, and hope for the best. As you’ll see below, the ball ended up in his glove:
Insane. Trout also hit a solo homer in the game and now owns a .290/.379/.556 batting line to go along with 36 home runs, 111 RBI, and 16 steals over 155 games. He’s the clear favorite to walk away with his first American League MVP Award.
