Bueller? Chicago fan skips school for Trout selfie

May 3rd, 2022

When one of the marquee names in baseball comes to town, you'd better believe people will drop what they’re doing to get to the ballpark.

That’s exactly what a young fan did in Chicago, as Mike Trout and the Angels finished out their four-game series with the White Sox. With the finale being a mid-afternoon game on Monday, the fan pulled off a nearly flawless Ferris Bueller impression and was caught on camera playing hooky from school to watch the Angels outfielder.

The fan didn’t try to hide it, though, coming prepared with a sign that read, “We skipped school for a selfie with Mike Trout.” Trout made sure they'd have something to show their friends in school the following day by stopping for a quick picture.

Hopefully Trout provided a note for the fan to give to his teacher as well.
