For the second time, Major League Baseball has awarded Millville native Mike Trout with the MVP Award for the American League. His first MVP Award came in 2014.

Trout plays for the California Angels. He hit .315 with 32 doubles, five triples, 29 home runs, 100 RBIs and 30 stolen bases. He led the Majors in runs (123), walks (116) and on-base percentage (.441), while his .991 OPS ranked second in the AL. Trout was fourth in the AL with a .550 slugging percentage, and he tied for second in steals (Altuve and the Royals’ Jarrod Dyson also had 30).

Millville has been proud of him every since he was known as the Millville Meteor in high school.  He played baseball and basketball at Millville Senior High School.

Great job, Mike!
