Photo: Mike Trout gets rookie treatment, dresses as a baby
Mike Trout is the clear-cut favorite to win the American League Rookie of the Year Award this season. The Los Angeles Angels phenom is having arguably the greatest rookie year anyone has ever had in the history of Major League Baseball. Trout leads all first-year players in nearly every offensive category including average (.321), homers (30), stolen bases (48), on-base percentage (.395), slugging (.557), runs scored (127), and OPS (.952). So, given his impressive performance on the diamond, wouldn't one think that Trout would be spared of the rookie hazing treatment? Not a chance.
Veteran teammate Torii Hunter snapped the above photo and posted it on Twitter after Sunday's doubleheader against the Texas Rangers. The 21-year old is decked out in classic baby attire complete with a diaper and bib. It seems as though no one is exempt from rookie hazing, not even emerging superstar Mike Trout.
