On Mike Trout’s 25th birthday, he gave us this grand slam-robbing catch as a party favor

Mike Trout turned 25 years old today. He is still too young, still makes me (a 35 year old man) feel super old. To mark the occasion of his special, special day, he struck out a bunch of times.

Okay, but BESIDES that, he also made this awesome, grand slam -stealing catch in center field, near a giant #24. The Kid himself was probably impressed. That’s one way to make up for a bunch of Ks in a close game. I normally would have given him a pass, but I think this catch makes up for it.

It was his birthday, after all, and this is one hell of a party favor.
