The centre fielder who is nicknamed The Millville Meteor, plays for the Anaheim Angels and is quickly becoming a star at only age 24. The family man who just recently moved out of his parents home, alongside his 3 legged dog,  is known to be more reserved and quiet, however, these hand selected quotes tell us he knows quite a bit more than we think about the fundamentals and psychology behind the game.



“I just keep thinking about putting up good numbers, playing hard and winning games.” – Mike Trout

“I always dreamed of making it in baseball, but life has moved pretty quickly for me.” – Mike Trout


“Coming into the year, my goal was to be the best player and to make the most impact on the field. To be in the MVP talk with guys like Cabrera, it’s an incredible feeling, a hard one to explain. When I made the All Star team, that was a really big moment of my career, and that’s when all the rookie-of-the-year talk started. It really came on fast. I was having so much fun during the year, I didn’t really think of the awards or the indivual stuff. I was just trying to help the team win.”Mike Trout

“I think just stepping out of the box, taking a deep breath. You know, I call timeout a lot, if I start thinking up there, I like to step out of the box and clear my mind. You do all your thinking in the cage before the game, once the game starts you just go out there and play baseball.” – Mike Trout


“It’s tough, you know you got the fans, the reporters, and everybody on you. For me, it’s getting the negative out of your head…your gonna fail 70% of the time, you got to stay positive and get the negative out of your head. For me, it’s always thinking positive.” – Mike Trout


“I can’t say that I’ve really achieved what I really want to be.” – Mike Trout
