Will Leitch, writing in New York Magazine, tells the story of one Mike Trout, unquestionably the greatest baseball player of all time and now nobody knows his name.
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”17″]There was a time that being the best baseball player made you one of the most famous human beings on the planet. That time is not now. [/perfectpullquote]
Trout just earned the largest contract in professional sports history and I bet most of you probably have never watched him play more than a half a dozen times.
Even though Albert Pujols burned me by taking the money and moving to the Anaheim Angels many moons ago, maybe I should call the Angels my American League team just to root for an underdog of a club with the greatest baseball player of all time manning the outfield.
