What’s next for Mike Trout?

How did he celebrate?
After leaving MLB Network Studios in Secaucus, Trout and his family headed to the Thunderbolt Club in Millville to celebrate with friends and family. The Thunderbolt Club is Millville’s booster club.

Will he sign a contract?
Trout has said repeatedly that he wants to play professionally. But contract negotiations are complicated. Trout does have a scholarship to East Carolina University to fall back on.

If he signs, where’s he going?
Trout will begin his career in a rookie league. The Angels have two rookie league teams. There are the Tempe Angels in Arizona and the Orem Owlz in Utah. The Owlz season begins June 23. Tempe starts June 21.

When will he be in the majors?
Baseball is the most unpredictable of all sports. Since Trout is a first-round pick, he will be given every chance to succeed. But the road to the majors is long. It took Phillies Ryan Howard and Chase Utley each three years to get called up to the majors.
