Mike Trout, the Los Angeles Angels' superstar, is heading to his 10th career All-Star Game. He was chosen as an American

League starter Friday. Trout will feel a bit more special this time because the festivities are located just down

the street from Anaheim's Dodger Stadium. Although Mike Trout hasn't had the best season in his entire life, he received

a fair amount of votes from fans. Trout was among four candidates for the spots alongside Aaron Judge, New

York Yankees' slugger. Trout and Giancarlo Stanton were elected. The veteran is currently batting.265 and has 23

home runs. He also has a.967 on-base percentage. Trout declined an invitation to participate in the Home Run Derby.

Despite being asked numerous times by the MLB, Trout has yet to take part in the event. Shohei Ohtani, Mike Trout's

teammate, will join him on the AL All-Star Team. Although the Japanese two-way star in Japan isn't shining

offensively, his popularity in Japan as well as in the US helped him win a lot of fans votes. Trout has been struggling

in July, averaging a miserable.045 in six contests. He hopes to turn his fortunes around before Tuesday's All-Star Game.
