I was raised in a baseball family, as my Father Paul “Dizzy” Trout pitched from 1940 to 1953 for the Detroit Tigers. I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. We were raised on the southside of Chicago, as our father worked for Bill Veeck and the Chicago White Sox.

I was drafted by the White Sox in 1976 only four years after our Father passed away due to cancer.

Our Mother was a very wonderful person who had ten children and two pitchers in her life.

I am proud of the baseball history my father and I have established. To this day we hold some modern day records. Dad and Hal Newhouser still hold the record for most wins by two pitchers on the same team, Dad winning 27 and Hal 29.
