2. Mike Trout is a player for the ages and is fun to watch.

MIke Trout is a special player to watch to say the least.  In the past seven seasons he has had more highlight reel moments than you can count.  In addition he just plays the game the right way and is willing to do the little things that make players around him and the team better.  He is also a positive force in the clubhouse and in the dugout.

Trout leads by example and many players have credited watching him and his work ethic and being inspired to work harder and be better.  Trout has also made himself accessible to young players both in the majors and also in the minors while he was doing his rehab assignment last season.  He conducts himself in the most professional manner at all times.  You never see Trout arguing or showing up the umpire or getting into altercations with his teammates or manager. If there have been any issues Trout has dealt with them in a private manner the way conflicts should be handled. Who wouldn’t a player like Trout on their team.
