You know that running joke about armchair GM’s and writers living in their parents’ basement? Well, at least Mike Trout thinks we’re cool1!!1!1
The Los Angeles Angels superstar might have a fancy condo in California during the season, but when its time to take a break the 21 year old spends his offseason in his parents basement, probably complete with Fatheads of himself.
Per Philly Mag:
As Trout’s star has ascended, he’s shared a sliver of the national spotlight with the working-class town near the Jersey Shore that he still calls home. (The All-Star spent the winter in his parents’ basement.) Sleep deprivation aside, everywhere you turn in Millville, Trout’s impact is felt—in ways as big as the billboards he now graces, and in others that are much harder to perceive.
Basement or not, the article is actually a pretty informative piece on how the small town surrounds itself with Trout, the pride and joy of the city.
Hopefully they’ll help Trout upgrade from the basement digs to a tree house after this season comes to a close.
I mean really – who doesn’t want a tree house?!
