Thousands of fans turn out for Trout's homecoming

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - More than 4,000 fans from Mike Trout's hometown of Millville, New Jersey came out to see the two-time All-Star centerfielder for the Los Angeles Angels play his first game in Philadelphia.

Trout grew up in the small town 45 minutes south of Philadelphia. Fans wearing red No. 27 Angels jerseys filled the stands. Many carried signs welcoming home Trout. The Millville High School baseball team was among those in the crowd.

The Phillies dubbed it "Millville Night" at Citizens Bank Park. A video tribute to the town was shown before the game. Millville Mayor Michael Santiago threw out the first pitch.

Trout still lives with his parents in Millville during the offseason. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2012 and finished runner-up to Miguel Cabrera for AL MVP in 2012 and 2013.
