Mike Trout is the Fourth Angels All Star Game MVP

The Fourth! - Elsa

Can you name the other three?

Mike Trout was awarded the 2014 All Start Game MVP after hitting an RBI Triple and an RBI Double and scoring a run in the American League's 5-3 victory.

But he wasn't the first Angels player to win the award. He was the fourth. Each of our franchise's ASG MVPs comes from an incarnation of the team with a different geographic monicker. Trout did it for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In 2003, Garret Anderson did it for the Anaheim Angels. Mike Scioscia was his manager that night - and GA had won the Home Run Derby the evening prior.

Fred Lynn was named the Most Valuable Player in the 1983 All Star Game as a member of the California Angels. he is still the only player to hit a grand slam in an All Star Game.

Here is some video of Lynn's feat:

But the first player to wear a Halo and be named the MVP of the ASG was Daddy Wags. Going all the way back to 1962, outfielder Leon Wagner was named the MVP of the ASG as a member of the Los Angeles Angels.

So Mike Trout is in good company.
