Video: Mike Trout becomes youngest player to enter the 200-200 club

Saturday’s 10-4 route of the Red Sox marked an auspicious moment for Angels’ superstar Mike Trout. The 28-year-old center fielder became the youngest player to reach the 200-200 club, a milestone he passed with his 200th career steal in the second inning.

With Brian Goodwin up to bat against Boston right-hander Marcus Walden, Trout seized the opportunity to nab second base as Goodwin swung through an 86-m.p.h. slider. He eventually struck out swinging, rendering the stolen base useless, but it still marked a significant moment for Trout.

Following the stolen base, Trout now has a staggering 283 career home runs and 200 stolen bases under his belt. Per MLB Stats, he’s managed double digits in both categories every season since 2012. He’s joined by Willie Mays (279 HR; 204 SB) and Darryl Strawberry (280 HR; 204 SB) as the only Major League players to produce at least 275 home runs and 200 stolen bases in nine straight seasons.

I've severely underrated Mike Trout

#1 - And Darryl Strawberry, since he apparently had nine straight seasons with at least 275 homers and 200 SB, too. I remember him being good, but wow!

Yeah, but did Strawberry ever have a walk-off HBP?

Mays had 279/204 in his first nine seasons, but they weren't consecutive. He didn't play in 1953. He had better nine-year runs later.

Barry Bonds, A-Rod, and Soriano also had nine-year 275/200 runs, just not in their first nine years like Mays, Strawberry, and Trout. I think Barry did it for all of his nine-year spans between 1987 and 2002.

They were counting all the home runs Strawberry hit for Springfield Nuclear Plant.

Hank Aaron just barely fell short from 1960 to 1968 - 331 HR, 195 SB.

Bobby Bonds, 1969 to 1977 - 256 HR, 348 SB.

Sammy Sosa, 1990 to 1998 - 269 HR, 210 SB.

You know what's the coolest baseball trivia factoid ever? Only two players in history have five 30/30 seasons: Bobby Bonds and Barry Bonds.

A few years ago I was certain Mike Trout would ruin it, but it turns out he won't.

I'm picturing footage of him actually entering some entrance to a swank building.

Such as this.

Acuna has as many 30/30 season as Trout does.

So does Dante Bichette.

Trout plays in Anaheim. Membership in the 200-200 club means he gets to take Walt Disney's frozen head for a day, like the Stanley Cup.

Apparently this fishy fellow is pretty good at baseball. Well, we all have to be good at something.

I think the rest of the thread ignored that comment, or didn't catch the quote.

Didn't my #2 refer to the same poorly worded quote?
