Millville, N.J. is made up of 28,711-people. Those in the town have watched Trout grow as players over the years.

“We have the same types of problems that any other city that has 28,000 people, but at the same time, we have that little piece of sunlight that’s always looming above us, tell us us ‘Hey, look, ya know what, there’s room for us to continue to rise,” Millville mayor Michael Santiago said. “Mike Trout did it and everybody else can do it.”

This Thursday,  The Levoy Theatre is hosting two pre-screenings of the film at 7 pm and 9 pm. If you are interested in the free tickets, you can reserve them at or calling 856-327-6400, or through the box office.

“I know everybody in this town,” Trout said. “Some of my friends I don’t see for the whole year. When I first started getting drafted, it was tough. [Millville] was me. I needed to be here. Moving away from my parents, I got brought into that world quick.”

Last season, he had a .315 batting average with 29 home runs and a 100 RBI’s, along with 30 steals.
