Mike Trout, hero of post-industrial New Jersey. A very nice, in-depth profile of the Angels outfielder by Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, focussing on his home town and upbringing.

Come for the “Mike’s down-to-Earth” stuff, stay for the “Mike Trout struck out 17 times in four years of high school baseball” hook. Seriously.
