Mike Trout is only in his third season. But the Angels superstar has already compiled quite the highlight reel in the outfield. Here are the 9 best catches of Trout's young career.
9. Craig Gentry thought that he had earned himself a trip around the bags with this shot to center. But Trout had other ideas.
8. Trout showed that he can come in just as well and he can go back with this amazing grab on a sinking liner in the third inning of a 1-1 ballgame.
7. Trout tracked this Brandon Barnes fly ball all the way and showed off his ups by robbing the Astro of a home run.
6. With the game tied at two in the seventh inning, Trout preserved the tie by robbing Matt Dominguez of extra-bases with this huge grab.
5. With a runner on second base and two outs, Gaby Sanchez launched this ball into the left field corner. Unfortunately for him, Trout tracked it and made an amazing diving catch.
4. This catch showed that Trout plays all-out no matter what the situation. Trailing by six late in the game, he went airborne to take back a long-ball.
3. Trout kept the game close in the ninth inning with this insane diving catch on a sinking liner to left-center field.
2. With two outs in the ninth inning, Prince Fielder drove a ball to deep center field. Trout took an unusual route to the ball but made an insane recovery to rob Fielder and end the ballgame.
1. Trout's best catch came with his parents at the ballpark. J.J. Hardy gave this ball a ride, but Trout took it back with this insane grab.
Honorable Mention: Even when he's not in the field playing defense, Trout is ready to make a nice catch.
