A Very Mike Trout Home Run

Last night, Mike Trout went 3-for-6 with a double, a homer, two runs, and an RBI. The Angels won, 8-2, over the Blue Jays, but let’s get back to that home run.

With big night at the plate, Albert Pujols passes up Mark McGwire for #10 on all time home run list

Man, Albert Pujols was a freakin’ wood-wielding demon tonight in Toronto; a burly and much-needed reminder of just how potent his brand of Old Man Power can be at times. As we’ve stated recently here at Halos Heaven, Albert Pujols is better than you think he is this season, and gems like this one are the proof in the Pujols pudding. Here was his night, as the numbers would...

Jahmai Jones Interviews with

But, all that may be on the cusp of changing. One of the top Angels prospects is Jahmai Jones (pronounced Jahm-eye Jones). Drafted in the 2nd round of the 2015 draft, Jahmai is...
