Orange County kids get Big League encounter with Angels’ Mike Trout – Orange County Register – California News

ANAHEIM — Although he was attending a youth hitting clinic, Anthonie Smith brought not one but two gloves with him. The 12-year-old from Fountain Valley had the rare opportunity to meet his hero, Angels star center fielder Mike Trout, one-on-one.

Trout signed a baseball for Smith and then the gloves. The second glove was special. Smith had sneaked away from his home in the morning with the glove belonging to his 6-year-old niece, Kalani Smith.

“It’s a surprise. I’m going to give it to her tonight,” Smith said. “It’s a secret.”

Although Smith said he was “a huge fan” of Trout, he said his niece, who went to preschool with a member of Trout’s family, was also a big fan.
