Trout, Hamilton receive hardware before game

ANAHEIM -- Mike Trout had a historic season last year, hitting .326 with 30 home runs, 129 runs scored and 49 stolen bases.

The 21-year old outfielder became the eighth player to unanimously win the Rookie off the Year Award and the second Angels player to do so, joining Tim Salmon in 1993.

Prior to Saturday's game -- which was also Mike Trout bobblehead night -- Trout was presented with his award in a ceremony behind home plate.

After receiving his Rookie of the Year Award, Trout and right fielder Josh Hamilton were presented with their Silver Slugger Awards from last season.

Hamilton hit .285 with 43 homers and 128 RBIs for the Rangers last year.
