Baby Trout: Angels' Mike, Jessica Trout welcome first child

Three-time AL Most Valuable Player Mike Trout is a first-time dad

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Three-time AL Most Valuable Player Mike Trout is now a first-time dad.

The Los Angeles Angels center fielder and his wife, Jessica, announced the birth of their first child Saturday, a boy named Beckham Aaron Trout.

The baby was born Thursday afternoon and weighed in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces. Little Beckham's middle name is undoubtedly a tribute to Aaron Cox, Jessica's brother and Mike's good friend, who died in 2018.

Trout, who turns 29 later this month, left the Angels on Thursday and was placed on the paternity list, which allows players to stay away from their teams for three days. Angels manager Joe Maddon said he believes Trout will return to the Angels shortly, but the team won't rush him.
