On Tuesday afternoon, the Anaheim Angels traded Mark Trumbo to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-team deal.
It wasn’t exactly shocking considering the trade talks had been ongoing for a few days and that the Angels more or less hinted Trumbo was going to be moved this offseason.
Despite that, Trumbo had committed to attending a holiday party for children put on by the Los Angeles Angels Foundation. Some may have figured their obligations were already met and considering they were no longer part of the team, they would have ditched the charity event – but not Trumbo. New zip code and all, Trumbo made sure to honor his promise and showed up to the children’s party despite no longer being a member of the team.
Pretty cool move.
I mean – it’s something you’d hope players would do anyway if they were ever put in such a position, but we all know there are plenty who’d look the other way.
Sounds like you got yourselves a winner, Arizona.
