Mike Trout Homers for Young Fan Because He's Mike Trout
The homer request was made by a seven-year old Trout enthusiast named Gavin Edelson, who apparently just wanted to see a dinger for no particular reason.
Since the two-time AL MVP can do pretty much whatever he pleases on a baseball field, he was more than happy to oblige.
Prepare to feel good:
We're not crying, you're crying.
As that intrepid reporter explained, Trout had already met this little dude previously, inviting him onto the field for batting practice and eventually homering for him last year in Baltimore.
Fortunately, this kid isn't terminally ill or anything, but that doesn't make Trout any less heroic.
Paul O'Neill makes a valid point.
In addition to being the most talented ballplayer on this Earth, Trout also appears to be a fine human being, as he seems to do cool shit with kids all the time.
Please don't look at us.
