L.A. Angels‘ rookie outfielder Mike Trout seems destined for stardom. At just 21-years-old, Trout becomes the seventh Angels’ player to make Sports Illustrated’s cover, a list that includes Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson, Rod Carew and Albert Pujols.
Trout has been named the American League Rookie of the Month for three consecutive months now, and he’s said to have a lock on the AL Rookie of the Year as well as being a top candidate for AL MVP.
SI writer Tom Verducci writes, “There never has been a position player this good this young.” He is on the August 27th, 2012 cover holding a bat under the headline, “The Supernatural.”
As of Wednesday, Trout’s stats make him the league leader with a .344 batting average, 97 runs, 39 stolen bases, a .606 slugging percentage and 1.014 on-base-plus-slugging percentage.
Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that he’s said to be handling the attention and acclaim with a great deal of maturity; remaining humble, modest and, most important for the Angels, focused.
There is no doubt that many corporations will be seeking out this exceptional player for Product Endorsement Deals and even Television Commercials as his star continues to rise. It will be exciting to watch his career, and this is likely only the beginning with much more to come for the young outfielder.
