Awesome Mike Trout t-shirt designed by Victor Rojas Big Fly Gear Co.

Recommended Posts

AngelsWin folks, pre-order your Millville Meteor shirt brought to you by the voice of the Angels, Victor Rojas. https://bigflygear.com/collections/millville-meteor

From the the website:

The Design: Since arriving in the ‘big leagues’ at the ripe old age of 19 in 2011, Michael Nelson Trout has been compared to a number of different baseball Hall of Famers (most notably, Mickey Mantle). Trout is one of those rare finds that has excelled because of the tools he possesses: hit for average, hit for power, incredible defender, terrific arm and blazing speed. While those attributes are found in other rare players from time to time, Trout has stood out because of the astonishing numbers he’s put up in his first 8+ plus seasons of Major League Baseball. Since 2012, Trout has racked up the honors at an amazing pace: Rookie of the Year, 3 Most Valuable Player Awards (4 - 2nd place finishes), 7 Silver Slugger Awards, 8 All-Star appearances and 2 All Star Game MVPs. The Millville, New Jersey native was the 25th overall selection by the Los Angeles Angels in 2009 after his All-American caliber senior season at Millville High School, where he hit .531 with 18 home runs in 81 at-bats. He would arrive in the big leagues for the first time just 2 years later, playing in 40 games with the Halos in 2011. The rest as they say, is history. While the moniker, ‘The Millville Meteor’, would come to be known after his high school days, it seems to fit Trout and his style of play. Like Mantle, who was known as ‘The Commerce Comet’ (Mantle was a native of Commerce, Oklahoma), it’s difficult to encapsulate the player with one particular word. We think ‘The Millville Meteor’ does just that for Trout…besides, we love the fact a player of his talents has a wonderful old-school nickname. 🐐approved!

Victor has a whole line of really cool nostalgic shirts. He and his family have done a terrific job with the creativity. 

Agreed. I'm wearing one in my profile photo - I wore it to a lot of games last summer and was asked at least half a dozen times where I got it.

We picked up a few of these to wear in Ohtaniland on Japan Day last season. I got a chance to talk to Ippei in front of the stadium and he liked the shirt.

I get that that’s his nickname on baseball reference, but do people actually refer to him as that?

It's not an everyday thing like Big Papi or Thor (or any number of Babe Ruth's nicknames), but you will hear Trout called that from time to time on SportsCenter or MLB Network.  Not as much as I would like.

I must have felt guilty about posting the fat guy picture.

I had a dream last night and I assume it was at a AW function, I didn't recognize anyone but it was an odd group of people that didn't "fit" together at all.

Anyways, we were playing softball and I struck out and the group of misfits all laughed at me.

It’s a decent looking T-shirt but I could never buy or wear that shirt.

Why?  Unfortunately it just seems contrived.

We are all fairly involved Angel fans, and while we recognize the reference, that just is not in any way a legitimate nickname for Mike Trout.   Nobody says that.

Who is the shirt for?  Maybe a mom that goes to one game a year and wants to pretend she is connected to the heartbeat of the team?

With all the cameras around, I don't think there is any upside to playing in an AW softball game.

 

The last one i played in, Rojas joined us for a few innings.

Yep, he was really good.
