The best player in baseball has agreed to a record contract extension with his team, the most valuable in sports history.

Mike Trout, the sensational center fielder of the Los Angeles Angels, agreed to a 13-year, $430 million contract extension with his team on Tuesday.

This contract will keep Trout in an Angels uniform until the 2032 season.

Never before in the history of sports has a team given a player a larger contract.

Trout’s new contract with Los Angeles breaks the previous baseball record set by Bryce Harper this offseason. His $430 million contract is also larger than Canelo Alvarez´s boxing contract with DAZN, the previous record holder.

Trout, at only 27 years old, is already a baseball legend and a sure-fire Hall of Famer. The two-time AL MVP has a .307 batting average, 240 home runs, and 648 RBIs in only 7 career seasons.

Trout has been named to the All-Star team in 7 consecutive seasons. He has also won six Silver Slugger awards in his career.

Despite only making the playoffs once with the Angels so far, he appears ready to stay with his current franchise long-term.

Trout and the Angels kick off the season on March 28th against the Oakland A´s.
