The name of Mike Trout’s drink of choice in the dugout is a nod to a popular animated movie starring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny.
During Saturday’s 4-3 win by the Los Angeles Angels over the San Francisco Giants, Trout hit his eighth home run of the season in the third inning. After getting back to the dugout, Trout was shown on the broadcast drinking from a bottle that had the words “Michael’s Secret Stuff” wrapped on the side.
The best player in baseball Mike Trout, hit a home run, walked in the dugout and drank from a bottle that said "Mike's Secret Stuff". I wish baseball knew how to market their players because he is so swaggy. pic.twitter.com/8rnl2rm3mq

Trout was also spotted with the “secret stuff” earlier this month.

Those who are familiar with the movie “Space Jam” will surely remember the locker room scene where Bugs Bunny drank from a blue water bottle that also had the words “Michael’s Secret Stuff” on it.

Trout is off to an excellent start to this season. He hit a 2-run home run on Sunday, giving him an MLB-best nine dingers on the season. Perhaps Shohei Ohtani has been sipping some of Trout’s drink because his exploits at the plate recently had him moved up to the cleanup spot on Mike Scioscia’s lineup card.
