But the star outfielder also had some time to help out one of his Angels teammates.
Trout was given a pink glove by reliever Jerome Williams and was asked to get autographs on it from some of his American League teammates. Trout returned with a fully signed glove.
"I put it on the table and everybody started signing it," Trout said.
Williams was thankful to Trout and the rest of the American League All-Stars and announced the gesture on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Thanks to mike trout and the rest of the American League all stars that signed my glove.#respect http://t.co/337m0MEDAy — Jerome Williams (@pinkpuka57) July 19, 2013
Williams, who uses a pink glove on the mound to honor his late mom Deborah, gave Trout a different glove to get signed. Williams' mother had a five-year battle with breast cancer and passed away in 2001.
The reliever said via Instagram that the signed glove will be used in a breast cancer research auction.
Trout is happy he could help his teammate and support a good cause.
"It means a lot," Trout said. "He's a great guy and I'm just trying to be a great teammate. If people ask me to do something I'm going to do it."
