SECAUCUS, NJ -- Millville centerfielder Mike Trout admitted that he was both relieved and elated after being selected with the 25th pick of the first round by the Los Angeles Angels in Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft.

"I was nervous and I'm happy now that it's done," said Trout, who was the only draft pick to attend last night's draft, held in Studio 42 at MLB Network. "I'm going to a great team with a winning history." 

Trout and his family set in a replica dugout in the studio for nearly two hours before he was selected.

He admitted to some sleepless nights leading up to the draft.

"I will sleep pretty good tonight," he said. "This is all worth it and it's great to be here with my family and friends."
Trout set a single-season South Jersey home run record with 18. He batted .531 with 45 RBIs.
