On Tuesday as the Los Angeles Angels battled the Oakland Athletics, Mike Trout did what he usually does on the diamond — dominate.
The Angels shared video of Trout going from first to home on a double from Jarrett Parker.

The A’s then responded.
Counterpoint: It'd be great if you left him off

The two teams continued to banter on Twitter, resulting in a funny response from Oakland’s Twitter account.
In case you don’t know, that’s a play on William Shatner playing Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek as he yells “Khaaaaaaaan!”
Well, the man himself somehow got wind of the whole exchange that resulted in him being the featured meme and responded.
Social media sure has changed things, and this time, the result was glorious fun.
