LA Angels’ Mike Trout Calls Weather Channel to Report on Blizzard

The Major Leaguer said he was up all night checking the snowfall measurements and estimated that there was about a foot of snow on the groundat 10:32 a.m. ET.

“The winds is the worst part about it, its blowing hard,” Trout said, adding that by his parents house there was about “4, 5, 6 foot drifts.”

Trout also reported that road conditions were “terrible,” but that the storm system was “awesome.”

The 2014 American League MVP wasn’t downplaying his excitement over weather. He said the blizzard delivered to his expectations and was excited to get outside and “play in it soon.”

Friday night, he also tweeted a video of the snow falling “hard” in #SouthJersey.

The weatherman ranked Trouts on-air reporting as the number three “funnest thing I’ve ever done.” As for Trout, turns out he does have some weather-predicting skills.

During an interview with Yahoo Sports last summer, Trout revealed that the Weather Channel wanted to offer him a corresponding gig.

“We’re planning on me doing a story when there’s a big storm in Jersey,” he said. “I’m gonna be on the Weather Channel. Hopefully, we get a big snowstorm.”
