Mike Trout Lived In His Parents Basement During the Off Season
Aww…ladies, he’s sadly taken.
I don’t know if it’s pathetic or kinda cute, but the 21-year-old Rookie of the year and 2nd in last year’s MVP race lived in his parent’s basement last off season.
Not sure if that’s also where he stashed his RoY throphy, but it’s where he rested his head according to Philadelphia magazine via Busted Coverage:
As Trout’s star has ascended, he’s shared a sliver of the national spotlight with Millville, New Jersey, the working-class town near the Jersey Shore that he still calls home. (The All-Star spent the winter in his parents’ basement.)…
The article goes on about how Trout is the pride and joy of his small NJ town of Millville, and how he’s just a good small town kid enjoying life. Awwww….
I must admit, it’s times like this where you just want to call over Rob Gronkowski and show this young man how someone who’s one of the best in the sport should wind down.
But at the same time it’s refreshing to see the fame and accolades haven’t gone to Trout’s head. Good kid.
