Los Angeles Angels Outfielder Mike Trout Has Some Serious Leaping Ability

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is considered one of the best five-tool players in baseball. But his jaw-dropping athleticism doesn't stop there, judging from this video of him jumping, shared on his Instagram.  

Trout is 6'2" and you'll notice (although it's not easy to tell with the horrible quality of the video) that the platform he's jumping up to is around his shoulder level. 

Hat tip to Matt Snyder of CBS Sports' Eye on Baseball for the find.
