Mike Trout got his mom Debbie a car for Mother’s Day
As if Mike Trout doesn’t already have enough going for him on the baseball field, now he can add “perfect son” to his resume.
Trout’s mother, Debbie, shared the above photo on Twitter Friday to let everyone know what her son got her as an early Mother’s Day present:

That looks like an Infinity SUV, which is a pretty sweet gift under any circumstance. And how awesome is it to get a car with one of those gigantic bows and red ribbons around the hood? That’s just how it looks in the commercials.
Man, I’d love to have that happen. I think everyone needs to experience that in life: seeing a new car sitting in the driveway with a big red bow as a present. How can it get better than that?
Oh, and just because Trout is the best player in baseball doesn’t mean that he’s filthy rich and able to just spread money around like it’s nothing. Sure, he has a national deal with Subway among others, but he’s only making $1 million this season after earning $510,000 last season. His signing bonus upon being drafted was $1.215 million, though he did recently agree to a massive contract extension with the Angels.
Life is good for the Trouts.
Oh, and the story isn’t over. Apparently they have a good sense of humor in the family. Check out what Mike’s brother, Tyler, tweeted to his mom in response:

Now that is brilliant!
