Mike Trout did exactly what the game's best player should do in his first at-bat of the 2014 season: The Los Angeles Angels' superstar crushed a two-run home run off Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.

With a man on base in the first inning, Trout worked the count to a ball and a strike. Then, he launched an 84-mph slider off Hernandez and over the left field wall to give the Angels a 2-0 lead. The homer came just two days after he signed a $144.5 million, six-year contract extension with the Angels. MVP! MVP! MVP!  on Twitpic

Perhaps not surprisingly, Angels fans got the "M-V-P" chant started early the next time Trout stepped up to the plate.
