Have you ever had that dream where you show up to the ballpark and you get to play catch with Mike Trout? Don’t worry, you can say yes — you’re among friends here and we’ve all had that dream. But it’s always sad when you wake up in a dull, Trout-less reality.
Unless, of course, you’re 13-year-old Amaree Burnett from Los Angeles, Calif., who was at Thursday’s (April 13) Rangers-Angels game. Just watch the video above to see him toss the ball to Trout.
“When I was playing catch with [him] I was just trying to think, ‘don’t overthrow him, don’t overthrow him,” he said.
Amaree had the experience of a lifetime, and you can definitely tell:
Yeah, those are the faces we’d make, too.
