Mike Trout must have watched some of Vladmir Guerrero's Angels highlights during the day.

Hours after the 2004 American League MVP signed a one-day contract with the club for the purposes of filing his retirement papers, Guerrero watched as Trout opened the season with a two-run blast into the bullpens off Mariners' ace Felix Hernandez in the bottom of the first inning.

The shot gave the Halos a 2-0 lead at the time, and helped the Angels get back into baseball mode after watching their hitting coach suffer a leg injury during the ceremonial first pitch.
