Mike Trout steals third base with awesome slide (Video)

Mike Trout slide

There isn’t a phase of the game at which Mike Trout does not excel. The guy is a great hitter and defender, and as we can see, he’s also a stellar baserunner. Just take a look at the awesome slide he used to steal third base against the Red Sox on Friday night.

Trout was beat so badly by the throw that he was initially called out. Knowing he got his hand around the tag, he asked the Angels to challenge the call, which they did successfully.

Having the call overturned helped open the floodgates for the Angels. They exploded for nine runs in the inning and ran the score up to 11-3 before eventually winning 12-5.

This deke by Trout is so slick we have to watch it in GIF form:

That was easily my favorite slide by a ballplayer since this awesome one by Justin Morneau.
