Mark Trumbo looking to make Angels roster, talks about his experience in Dominican Winter League in 2009

Mark Trumbo has been one of the most productive minor leaguers in the Angels system for the last several years.  The southern California native led all the minor leagues in home runs last season.  According to the Los Angeles Times he is having a good spring and making a push for a big league roster spot (see the Times article here and here).

So, what does this have to do with Dominican baseball you ask?  Well, Trumbo played several games with the Gigantes in the Dominican Winter Baseball League (LIDOM) in 2009.  Last winter league he played in the Venezuelan Winter Baseball League (LVPB).

The Dominican Baseball got a chance to talk to Mark on a team bus to the airport, as he was leaving the country on November 11, 2009.  See the full interview at the Dominican Baseball Examiner
