Watch Mike Trout’s amazing golf trick from inside his house
Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout is apparently really good at golf, too.
With baseball on pause, and everyone sheltering-in-place, we are left with Instagram videos to remind us how Mike Trout is one of the greatest athletes of all-time.
The superstar centerfielder posted a video of himself hitting a golf ball from the second story of his house into a red plastic cup on the ground floor.
At least he’s keeping busy while being stuck indoors!
I think anyone watching the video assumes he did this on his first take.
This isn’t the first time Trout has made headlines from his golfing ability. In March, he hit a golf ball to seemingly another planet at a TopGolf event.
It’s always an exciting day for news when Mike Trout is in the headlines. Yesterday, fans were feeling nostalgic in thinking back to the same date in 2019 when the Angels officially announced Trout would stay in Anaheim for life. How much has changed around baseball in just one year’s time.
With the season originally set to begin on Thursday, reports are starting to trickle out about how a condensed schedule would look if the season eventually returns in June or July (or later?). While there’s a growing sense among baseball executives that an 81-game schedule is the best case scenario, a Los Angeles Times report indicates Scott Boras has pitched a plan to play all 162 games stretching into December, with playoff games held in warm cities like Los Angeles, and a World Series game landing on Christmas.
Beyond the number of games played, Major League Baseball would need to decide whether to reset the match-ups on the schedule. Jayson Stark reports the season would likely pick up on the existing schedule in order to reduce the logistical complexities associated with reserving hotel rooms, planning travel, and setting stadium dates. More to come!
