2.  Mike Trout continuously shows the world why he's a class act and an asset to the game of baseball, both on and off the field. While some feel like Trout could put more effort in building his brand for marketability, his team praises his actions saying that "his brand is built upon generously spending time engaging with fans". 

 Mike says, ""Obviously not a lot of people see it, but I take time every day. I make sure I do that. As a kid growing up, I could see myself being in the same shoes as that kid wanting an autograph or wanting to meet their favorite player. I think it's cool to put a smile on people's faces."
