6. Mike Trout – July 15, 2014
Just last year was when we all had a chance to witness the growing legend of Mike Trout.
He went 2 for 3 and no he did not hit a home run. But following him was Derek Jeter in the lineup, in what would be the Yankee captain’s swan song. Jeter doubles to lead off the game and Trout immediately triples off of Adam Wainwright to drive in Jeter. He lines out to leftfield in his next at bat and then doubles off of Pat Neshek in the 5th driving in another run.
Trout added a nice catch in the outfield and helped the AL win 5-3, but what he really did was make everyone take notice of how he is taking over as the best player in the game.
