Mike Trout has shown incredible power to all fields in his historic career

Since entering the MLB as a 19-year-old in 2011, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim center fielder Mike Trout has taken the league by storm.

All it took was his rookie season to establish himself as the most complete player in the entire MLB.
In all five full seasons as a Big League player, he has made the All-Star team and incredibly has already won two AL MVP's while finishing second the other three years.

Keep in mind that he just turned 25-years-old and likely has a decade of superior, elite production ahead of him.

Coming off an MVP-winning season in which he hit .315 with 29 home runs, 100 RBI's, 30 stolen bases and a preposterous .441 on-base-percentage, Trout's ability to put up numbers across the board has been well-documented.

Something that doesn't show up on the typical stat sheet, however, is how he spreads the ball to different parts of the field when he's at the plate. In other words, does he take outside pitches the other way to right field, or does he tend to pull those types of pitches?

As you might expect, Trout has used every inch of the ballpark and has hit with power to all fields, which is the sign of an elite hitter.

Trout is well on his way of chasing Barry Bonds' MLB record of seven MVP awards. While it would help to have some protection around him in the Angels lineup next season, he's proven to still put up historic numbers year after year and will be a perennial All-Star for years to come. 

That home run chart is just another reminder why.
