Shout Out to Trout

16 Jul

Washington Post baseball writer Adam Kilgore has a fine profile of Mike Trout today in which he muses on why this superstar isn’t as well known as his counterparts in the NBA or the NFL.

Trout is the ideal player to emulate, a complete constellation of skills in an athletic package nearly impossible to duplicate. He has tree-trunk thighs and sewer-pipe biceps — he would not look out of place in an NFL linebackers meeting room. He runs the bases like a leopard. He owns the 11th-highest slugging percentage in baseball history and still walks more than he strikes out.
