On This Day In Baseball History: May 21, 2013

Mike Trout

 

Angels center fielder Mike Trout becomes the youngest American Leaguer in history to hit for the cycle at 21 years, 9 months, and 16 days. Mel Ott was the youngest ever as a New York Giants of the NL in 1929 as a 20-year old. Trout’s game started off with a strikeout followed by a single, triple, double, and with everyone in the stadium hoping for he went yard. He ended the night 4-5 with two runs, five rbi, and a stolen base. He would finish his 2013 season second in the MVP voting.
