It's official: We can now add "weather correspondent" to Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout's resume.
Trout has made it known he is a "weather guy," writing in the Players' Tribune he has direct messaged people at The Weather Channel about storm models. With Winter Storm Jonas burying the East Coast, the 2014 American League Most Valuable Player had a chance to live his dream.
He got to give a weather report.
On Friday night, Trout shared a video of himself driving through the snowstorm back home in New Jersey:
That tweet set the stage for an appearance on The Weather Channel.
Trout called the station Saturday morning to give Jim Cantore a report on the weather conditions in Millville, New Jersey. While Cantore ranked the experience among the best of his career, it was probably an even bigger thrill for the four-time AL All-Star.
How did Trout do as a weather correspondent? Let's see what Cantore had to say:
