Kevin held onto the ball ever since Trout hit a home run during his Little League days in New Jersey. Kevin had Trout sign the ball after a game. For the last two decades, Kevin held on to it as a keepsake. 

But considering his nephew is now one of the top players in baseball, Kevin decided it was time to sell it.

In addition to the ball, a Little League picture of Trout was included in the lot, per Robert Edward Auctions. 

The bids began at $2,500 for the ball, and the price rose over 24 hours. There were 27 bids that pushed the price up.

Entering Tuesday, Trout owns a career .303/.414/.587 slash line with a 1.002 OPS, 355 home runs and 909 RBIs in 1,428 career games over 13 years. Those numbers could be even better if he hadn’t missed time with injuries.
