On the baseball field, Mike Trout is considered a five-tool player, which means he excels at everything baseball executives and scouts look for — he can run, throw, hit for average, hit for power and field his position.

Basically, he's the blueprint of what the perfect modern day baseball player should look like. But even as impressive as all of that sounds, it still doesn't capture just how athletically gifted this 22-year-old physical freak is.

The incredible video Trout posted on his Instragram account on Wednesday, on the other hand, does an excellent job of showcasing his freakishness.

In the video, which is admittedly a little grainy, the 6-foot-2 Trout shows off his incredible leaping ability by executing a flat-footed jump onto a platform that leveled off just below his shoulders.
