a millville boy becomes an angel
It's not often that a guy from my hometown in South Jersey makes the big leagues, but it has happened. Mike Trout, born and raised in Millville, is with baseball's Los Angeles Angels (formerly the Anaheim Angels, formerly the California Angels, formerly the Los Angeles Angels) and is having a terrific season. At this point, according to ESPN, Mike leads American League rookies in four major offensive categories including batting average and on-base percentage, and, if he continues at this pace, he has a good shot at being named Rookie of the Year. Wishing him the best. Hail hail to old Millville.
