Milestone: Mike Trout’s 300th Career Home Run

On Friday night, we said it was likely that Mike Trout would hit his milestone 300th career home run before Labor Day weekend was out

It’s Mike Trout we’re talking about here, and he made us look clever. Once again, the living legend delivered early on a Saturday night in Anaheim. Equally important, it made him the all-time Angels franchise home run leader. 

Furthermore, let’s get a look at the home run which came in a 10-9 victory over the Houston Astros in the first game of a double-dip. 

We are living in a privileged era watching this guy play each night. While we and Trout got cheated out of some games and career statistics in 2020 due to COVID-19, he’s got 15 home runs on the shortened season and has accomplished some major fireworks. 

Finally, it’s hard to believe we are a full decade into the Mike Trout era. And he’s hit all 300 of those home runs since we began writing about baseball on this blog. Without question, every word written about the guy here couldn’t possibly do his immense talent true justice.
