Most people think that Mike Trout is a shoo-in to be a Hall of Famer when he is finished playing. But is there anyone else on their roster who could be headed there too.
Mike Trout recently won his third AL MVP Award which puts him in elite company in baseball history. Trout now moves into a 10-way tie for second place in the most MVP awards with three. The most recent player on that list is Trout’s teammate and mentor Albert Pujols. Pujols won the award three times in the NL in 2005, 2008, and 2009.
The only player in baseball to win the MVP award more was Barry Bonds with seven. Bonds’ legacy has been tainted due to alleged steroid use. Bonds has yet to be inducted into the Hall of Fame for that very reason despite holding numerous baseball records including the most career home runs with 762. While Bonds may not get in the hall anytime soon, who from the Angels has a shot to be elected to the hall of fame.
This is pretty much a no-brainer as Albert Pujols has put of such of the best numbers of his era and is one of only three players to hit over .300 have 3,000 hits, and smack 600 homers, while driving in over 2,000 runs.
If those aren’t hall…
