Angels to give away bobblehead depicting Mike Trout's epic catch from 2012

Last season, Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout put fans in awe after robbing a homer from Baltimore Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy. Trout went a long way in tracking the baseball and eventually timed his leap perfectly to secure the would-be solo shot. It was truly a glorious sight to behold.

On April 13, the Halos will commemorate the magic moment by giving away a bobblehead that depicts the 2012 Rookie of the Year's signature grab. The resemblance of the replica bobblehead to the actual play is striking.

Naturally, State Farm is the sponsor for the giveaway, because it is always wise to have some protection. And Trout certainly provided some protection for Jered Weaver's ERA on the play.

Video of the catch can be seen below.
