Generally speaking, veteran New York Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has made a long, successful, and sometimes complicated career out of throwing a bunch of fastballs. Most of them are located well and many of them have plus velocity.
Young superstar Mike Trout has enjoyed immense success in his career thus far by pounding pitches, in particular mistakes made by the opposing pitcher, using a sweet, compact swing.
In the video below, you will find Trout using said swing to punish one of the aforementioned fastballs from Colon.
The home run was Trout’s 4th of the season, and it got the ball rolling for the Angels’ offense as they went on to bludgeon the Mets to the tune of a 14-2 victory on Sunday afternoon.
