Mike Trout nearly hits ball through Minute Maid Park's roof (VIDEO)

It's no secret Mike Trout can hit the long ball with the best of them. But the Angels' all-everything player might have set a record for highest pop up — even when it came inside a domed stadium.

Trout sent this first-inning sky ball so high at Minute Maid Park, it would have put a hole in the the old Astrodome.

Although Trout only hit the rafters Tuesday night, the ball still took 8.17 seconds from the time it came off his bat until it bounced off Astros catcher Jason Castro's mitt.

Pretty amazing, especially when you realize most home run balls take 4-6 seconds to leave the park.

Still, you know the centerfielder would have rather seen the ball go long than high.
