Mike Trout was already the best baseball player on the planet, and he’s been even better at the sport since becoming a father.

Trout went on the paternity list last Thursday, due to his wife Jessica expecting their first child. And a baby indeed arrived- Beckham Aaron Trout.

Well, Papa Trout returned to the Los Angeles Angels’ lineup on Tuesday against the Seattle Mariners, and proceeded to hit a home run in his first at-bat.

And on Wednesday night, Trout cranked two more dingers.

The three-time AL MVP has three home runs in just seven at-bats since returning. Pitchers around the league have to be trembling at the thought of Dad Power Trout.
