Mike Trout is already known as one of the fastest players in the minors, and arguably the best power-speed combination the minors have seen in several years. This weekend, he added another story to the legend.
Playing for Triple-A Salt Lake, Trout scored from first on a run-of-the-mill single. Admittedly, the element of surprise played a part, as Trout just never stopped at third when right fielder Sawyer Carroll threw a looping throw to second base. But very few players have the speed to have taken advantage of the poor throw.
