The Angels Are Giving Away Souvenir Mike Trout Hats That Feature a Protruding Trout

Tuesday June 18th, 2013

Forget souvenir bats and bobbleheads and soap dispensers. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are upping the stadium giveaway ante tonight by doling out mesh hats that celebrate their All-Star outfielder—and, more to the point, his surname. Can't decide whether the lid is absurd or magnificent? Just ask yourself: Is there any function where this gilled sea creature with Trout's autograph wouldn't immediately make you more popular? The answer, of course, is no.
