Mike Trout is a lock for American League rookie of the year, and he's a leading candidate for most valuable player, but this week he reached a different kind of sports pinnacle. Trout, 21, is on the cover of Sports Illustrated, holding a bat under the headline, "The Supernatural." Trout is the seventh Angels player to make Sports Illustrated's cover, a list that includes Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson, Rod Carew and Albert Pujols. Several players from the 2002 team graced the cover after the Angels won the World Series.
