What can Trevor Bauer do for you? Aside from winning the 2013 World Series MVP Award and being the highest paid pitcher in Major League Baseball history, this 28-year-old pitcher almost has a cult following online (he has a YouTube channel with over 1 million subscribers and still manages to tweet from the dugout). Though he requires a six-figure contract to sign on, a poll of fans revealed he'd be the most beloved player in their entire hometown.

Trevor Bauer

Bauer had a childhood fascination with pitching, often practicing alone outside of his private lessons. After three seasons with William S. Hart High School, culminating in a junior year in which he posted a 0.79 earned run average (ERA), Bauer chose to graduate a year early and enroll at the University of California, Los Angeles. He and fellow ace Gerrit Cole helped take UCLA to a 22-game winning streak and a College World Series appearance as sophomores in 2010, and the following year, Bauer won both the Golden Spikes Award and the National Pitcher of the Year Award. The Diamondbacks selected him third overall at the 2011 MLB Draft, and he made his major league debut the following June, the first member of his draft class to reach the majors.

Born on June 18th, 1993, Trevor Bauer began his professional career in 2011. As a member of the Cleveland Indians minor league system, Bauer’s fastball was clocked as high as 102mph and was credited with a high . 407 winning percentage. He was then promoted to the major leagues where he would only pitch for Cleveland for a year before moving over to the Cincinnati Reds.

He continued to practice his technique at William S. Hart High School in Santa Clarita, and he spent the summers at a baseball camp in Texas. As a junior in 2008, Bauer posted a 12–0 win–loss record with a 0.79 earned run average (ERA), and his fastball reached speeds of up to 92 mph (148 km/h). His final high school game was a playoff shutout against Canyon Springs High School that Hart took 4–0. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
