Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout has finalized a contract extension with the franchise that will pay him $430 million over 12 seasons.
Trout has spent his entire eight year career with the Angels dating back to when the club played their home games in Anaheim, CA. Trout is a seven time all-star, six time Silver Slugger Award winner and he also was awarded as the American League (AL) MVP in 2014 and 2016. He undoubtedly has been one of the best players in all of baseball since he came into the league however one of the huge knocks to his game has been his inability to carry the Angels into the postseason as he’s only been once (2014).
Nonetheless, Trout is now the owner of the richest contract is all of sports history and it was certainly well-deserved.
