Mike Trout I am writing this paper about my favorite baseball player, Mike Trout. Mike Trout is nicknamed “The Millville Meteor” and he is and American professional baseball center fielder for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball. He is 6’2” tall and he went to Millville Senior High School, and for college he went to East Carolina University. Mike Trout was a first round draft pick by the Angels in the 2009 MLB draft, and made a brief major league appearance in 2011. He then becomes one of the regular players for there team. The next year 2012 he won the AL Rookie of the Year award. His number is 27 and he bats right, and throws right. His batting average is .309 and he has 572 hits, 98 home runs, and 307 runs batted in, and 373 runs. I’m going to talk to you guys about his career highlights and awards. Mike Trout has gotten a lot of awards in his baseball career so far. In (2014) he got AL MVP. Through the (2012-2014) season he was a 3x All-Star. (2014) He got MLB All-Star Game MVP. (2012) AL Rookie of the Year. (2012-2014) He got a 3x Silver Slugger Award. (2014) He got AL Hank Aaron Award. (2014) AL RBI champion. (2012) AL stolen base champion. (2014) AL Outstanding Player. As you can see he has accomplished a lot of things in his career and he’s not even at the pinnacle of his career yet. He then accomplishes a very hard thing to do called hitting a cycle. That is when you hit a single, double, triple, and home run all in the same game. He got that on May 21, 2013 against the Seattle Mariners. Cycles are about as rare as a no-hitter. Those are some of the awards and career highlights Mike Trout has done. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Trout Mike Trout is my favorite player because he plays for my favorite team and he’s really good. Mike Trout has made a really good MLB start and now is a starting player for the team. He plays outfield and bats 3rd in the lineup. He has made some amazing catches in his MLB career. He has robbed so many homeruns and makes a lot of diving catches in the outfield. Mike Trout and I both play the same position sometimes. I pitch most of the time but when I don’t I go in the outfield. I also bat in the 3rd batting position. Those are some reasons on why I like Mike Trout. When Trout first started playing baseball his initial position was a pitcher and a shortstop. In his junior year he threw a no hitter against Egg Harbor Township high school. He was shifted to the outfield his senior year of high school. That year he hit 18 home runs, and that was a record for his high school. Before this he played travel ball with a team named Tri-State Arsenal. Trout played in various tournaments with Tri-State Arsenal, including the Perfect Game WWBA Championships in Jupiter, FL in 2007 and 2008. In the summer before his senior year, Trout attended the Area Code Game in southern California where he went 6-for-11 against some of the best players in the country. The Angels scout Greg Morhardt, who had played in the minor leagues with Trout’s father, claimed Mike was the fasted and strongest 17-year-old he had ever seen. Well as you can see Mike Trout is a very good baseball player. He’s done a lot of things all doing with baseball when he was a kid and notice he’s in the MLB now. I look up to him a lot and I now know that if I really wanted to go to the MLB or think I could make it I just have to do stuff what he did and show them that I can do it. That is why Mike Trout is my favorite baseball player.

    In the last paragraph of The Road, McCarthy describes the beautiful brook trout that once lived in the streams. His description of the trout greatly contrasts most the novel. The landscape in The Road is barren, dark, cold, filthy, and devoid of life. However, after the death of the boy’s father, McCarthy chooses to end his novel with a description of trout whom “on their backs were vermiculate patterns that were maps of the world in its becoming” and who “in the deep glens where they lived all…

In the shark and trout predation, the shark benefits by feeding upon my focal species, therefore, this form of predation is parasitism. On the other side, the trout eats the ghost shrimp. Therefore, the trout benefits at the expense of the ghost shrimp. Thus, this relationship is parasitic as well. Moreover, the trout has an indirect interaction with the starfish. Both species compete for…
