LOOK: Mike Trout falls victim to hilarious prank by Orbit, the Astros mascot
Even the best player in baseball isn't immune to mascot tomfoolery
Mike Trout has a pretty great life. He's widely considered the best player in baseball and a future Hall of Famer at the age of 25 -- an age when most are still trying to find out what they want to do with their lives. Yet for all Trout's talent and success, we learned on Tuesday night that he's still a target for ill-intending mascots.
On the bright side, Trout does seem to love the Astros -- just not in that way. He's hit .283/.410/.547 against them, marks that nearly match his overall career totals. He also got the last laugh on Tuesday, sparking a four-run fifth inning with an RBI double -- which led to a three-run home run by Albert Pujols -- to seal a 5-2 win over Houston.
