Mike Trout and Mitch Moreland love to talk hunting at first base

Mike Trout and Mitch Moreland may not seem like the most likely friendship in baseball. Moreland grew up in Mississippi; Trout grew up in New Jersey. Moreland played college baseball; Trout was drafted out of high school.

Moreland is about six years older than Trout. However, whenever Trout and Moreland play each other, they always find themselves discussing their shared passion: Hunting.

Trout and Moreland did share a division for six years while Moreland was with the Rangers, and whenever Trout was on first base with Moreland in the field, they always found themselves talking shop. It's carried over to today, where as the Angels and Moreland's new team, the Red Sox, still face off a few times each year.
