May 11 (UPI) -- Angels star outfielder Mike Trout dedicated his home run Friday night to a 7-year-old fan watching in the stands.
Trout met with Gavin Edelson, a young fan he met during last summer's trip to Baltimore, before the Angels' 8-3 victory over the Orioles. Edelson brought a sign for Trout to an Angels-Orioles game last season and was invited by the two-time AL MVP to take batting practice with him.
Trout hit a home run for Edelson last year. He did the same thing Friday night, too.
"Obviously, he knew a lot about me since the first time," Trout said. "He was a little shy the first time. He was still shy today, but he talked to me more. But what a great family."
Trout gifted Edelson one of his bats. The young fan was also interviewed by the Angels' TV broadcast.
Trout broke a 2-for-19 slump with a two-hit night on Friday. Trout is currently hitting .292 with eight home runs and 24 RBI in 35 games for the Angels.
Los Angeles is 3-1 on their East Coast road trip. The Angels are 7-3 over their last ten games and have improved their overall record to 18-20.
