Video: Mike Trout shows off mad hops on box jump

The only thing that needs work in this clip is the videography skill of the person filming, because Mike Trout’s leaping ability is insane. The Los Angeles Angeles superstar outfielder posted this Instagram video showing of his mad hops on a box jump.

We don’t know exactly how high it is, but for a point of reference, Trout is listed at 6’2. The platform is just below his shoulder height, so take approximately a foot and a half off. That would mean the stand is around 4’8, or 56 inches.

    All these boxjumps with athletes…. it’s starting to be a normal thing. How about “backflipping” into the jump… now that’s something.
