With both able to display an incredible mixture of speed, power and athleticism, it makes sense that Mike Trout—the five-tool outfielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim—just selected a 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray as his prize for winning the MLB All-Star Game Most Value Player Award.
Trout led the American League to victory in the recent contest, courtesy of a first-inning rbi triple that helped the AL kick off the All-Star game scoring, as well as a double that put the junior circuit ahead for good in the fifth inning. The final score was 5-3, with the Detroit Tigers' Max Scherzer picking up the win. The MLB regular season picks up again later this week, with Trout starting the second-half of the season with a .310 batting average, a .400 on-base percentage, 22 home runs and—for the sabermetrically inclined—already has rung up a WAR of 5.5.
