VIDEO: Mike Trout's leaping ability is decent

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Upon first glance, you'll notice the video posted to Angels superstar Mike Trout's Instagram account (and again below here) is a bit grainy. Please don't let that deter you from viewing, because this is quite impressive.

For a point of reference, Trout is listed at 6-foot-2. Standing flat-footed, it appears that platform in the video is either shoulder height or just shy.

So will jumping up and landing on said platform create a problem for the phenom? Please.

As noted in the headline, that is ... decent.

Obligatory reminder: Spring training is just about a month away!
