5 worst Seattle Mariners moments from the 2020 Season
3rd worst moment: Mike Trout’s first at-bat as a dad ends in a home run
This was not the worst moment of the season for the Seattle Mariners but it might have been the most annoying moment. Mike Trout has a track record of hitting against the Mariners, as he has hit more home runs against Seattle than any other team. This success was prior to being a dad, however, so maybe after going on paternity leave Trout would be out of rhythm coming back after almost a week off right?
After five days off to be with his wife for the birth of their first child, Mike Trout came to Seattle and was the usual Mike Trout hitting 3 home runs in his first two games back. The first of the three was also in his first at-bat back from paternity leave.
Like I just said, I thought he might be a little off after such a long rest but facing a rookie pitcher Justin Dunn, against the team he has hit the most home runs off of, I should’ve known that the possible greatest player of all time would not take a step back after missing a few days.
