I just never, ever get tired of reading about Trout. The more I learn, the more I appreciate him.  So blessed to get to watch him play every day for my favorite team.

However... this caught my eye...

"Other than Cal Ripken, I've never seen anybody that good at understanding how much you can make someone's day or life if you just take a moment to go over and say hi," Gubicza said.

Trout as a rookie in Tempe talked to my kids for a few minutes. My youngest who may have barely been 5 asked what he was chewing (gum). He went back to the clubhouse and came out with some for both of them.
