Before the Los Angeles Angels-Detroit Tigers game on Sunday, Mike Trout made a fan’s day by signing his baseball. The body language on this kid said everything: the look back to his dad, the smile on his face, the fidgeting. According to Reddit user “ESF-hockey,” you can kind of read his lips as saying, “I love you, man. You’re my favorite player ever.” And of course, the kid teared up as he gave his dad a hug.
Seeing kids gets excited in front of their heroes is still one of the coolest things about sports. Good on you, Mike Trout.
