WASHINGTON (CBS) — Mike Trout isn’t afraid to wear his Philadelphia Eagles fandom on his sleeve. The Los Angeles Angels center fielder gave the Super Bowl champions a shout-out during the All-Star game on Tuesday night.
Trout, an Eagles season ticket holder, was mic’d up for an inning during the game when play-by-play announcer Joe Buck asked him about his beloved Birds.
“Go Eagles,” Trout said with a wide grin across his face.
He then gave another shout-out to quarterback Carson Wentz and tight end Zach Ertz, saying he hopes they are watching.
“Yessir!! We’re watching brother!” Ertz tweeted shortly after.
Trout went 1-2 with a home run in the American League’s 8-6 win over the National League.
