He's only 26. We repeat, he's 26 years of age. Twenty-six.
It's easy to forget that Mike Trout is only a few months older than Aaron Judge.
Judge is the rookie phenom whose 51 home runs have mesmerized the baseball world. Trout is finishing up his seventh season (that's right, his seventh season), and while he hasn't ever totaled more than the 41 homers he hit in 2015, Trout reached a bigger milestone Friday night. He clubbed his 200th career home run—his 31st of the season—at home against Mariners pitcher Marco Gonzalez.
As is customary with any Trout accomplishment, it's uncovered that only a select few Hall of Fame players have mirrored his performance and an absurd amount of fun facts flooded Twitter.
