Mike Trout’s love of meteorology is one of the many things that has endeared the reigning MVP to baseball fan’s everywhere, and Yahoo’s Jeff Passan has a new feature that dives into Trout’s love of weather forecasts.

The story tells how Trout’s love of weather was born of a desire to miss school with snow days, and his friendship with The Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore.But the finest nugget is the outfielder’s crazy idea of a dream vacation.

“A sick vacation for me,” Trout said, “would be to go to upstate New York when a big snowstorm hits.”

Trout may get a chance to turn his passion into a dream job soon, as The Weather Channel has offered him a shot as a guest correspondent should any big storms hit the Northeast during the off-season, while he is living in his hometown of Millville, N.J.
