If Mike Trout Played His Entire Career in the Pecos League: An OOTP Experiment

I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you this, but Mike Trout is unequivocally the best player in Major League Baseball at this point in time. His 54.4 WAR is the highest ever by a 26-year-old. He tied for 3rd in the Majors in WAR in 2017 despite missing over 40 games. He has clearly proven capable of dominating the best competition in the world. But how would he fare against the worst competition in the world?

We’ve already shown that Trout would become a god if he were to play in Korea. Now it’s time to look even further down the rungs of professional baseball. I’m about to show you how Mike Trout would fare if he played his entire career in the Pecos League, and beware, it’s going to be disturbing.

The Pecos League of Professional Baseball Clubs is an independent baseball league in the southwestern United States. If there is a hierarchy of the independent leagues, the Pecos League is most certainly at the bottom. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at one of the team logos.

An actual professional sports team proudly displays this piece of garbage. Only 2 former Pecos Leaguers have pitched in the MLB. Jon Edwards pitched 25 innings for the Rangers and Padres in 2014 and 2015, and Chris Smith pitched 5 innings for the Blue Jays in 2017. That’s it. Calling this a “professional” baseball league may be a bit generous. Aside from the amateur graphic design, several players are not compensated for their play. In fact, these so-called “Taxi players” actually PAY the league for the pleasure of playing on one of its teams. This seems like the perfect place for Mike Trout to show off his skills.

If there’s one more thing you should know about the Pecos League before we begin, it’s the fact that the league is an absolute hitter’s paradise. The league-wide ERA was 6.30 in 2017, and by my count, 9 players hit .400 in the 60-game season. Several teams play at high altitude, including the Santa Fe Fuego. Situated at roughly 7200 feet, Santa Fe’s Fort Marcy Ballfield is only 305 feet down the right field line. The result was about what you would expect. The 2017 Fuego scored a whopping 9.54 runs per game in 2017 with an ERA of 8.09. No pitcher in their right mind would pitch in an offensive environment such as this. But I can think of one hitter who would gladly play here.

Using the baseball management sim OOTP, I placed Mike Trout on the Santa Fe Fuego. Major League Baseball and all of its players have been deleted, and Trout will be forced to play ball in New Mexico for a measly $550 yearly salary. The game will begin in the year 2017, but Trout will begin as his age-20 self from 2012. He will play the entirety of his career against the worst professional baseball players in the world. Most importantly, I increased the season length to 162 games, so that Trout’s counting stats can be put into a familiar context.

Well, it looks like Trout is anxious to get going. Let’s get this underway, beginning with the 2017 season!

2017: WAR – 26.9

Trout’s rookie season went about as expected. After posting a god-like slash line of .602/.712/1.328, Trout was voted MVP and Rookie of the Year. He hit 115 home runs and had 325 RBIs. He walked 234 times and stole 92 bases. He had separate hitting streaks of 33 and 41 games. His WAR in this one season alone equals Ervin Santana’s WAR from his entire 13-year career. Trout led the league in every single category except for doubles and triples. His team won 120 games and defeated the High Desert Yardbirds in the league championship. Mike Trout took the Pecos League by storm in 2017, but he was only just getting started.

2018: WAR – 26.1

By some measures, Trout was even better in his age-21 season. He set a career high with his .756 OBP, but his 109 home runs are a step back from his rookie year. Trout walked in a whopping 306 of his 899 plate appearances. Pitchers were clearly afraid, or at least incapable, of pitching to him. Even though he walked so often, Trout still managed to finish the season on a record-shattering 63 game hitting streak. His 131-win Fuego once again defeated the Yardbirds in the championship series, and Trout won his second of many MVP awards.

 

2019: WAR – 25.4

Trout’s marvelous hitting streak was snapped just 2 games into the 2019 season, at 64 games. Despite that disappointing bit of news, Trout was better than ever. He stole 129 bases while only being caught 4 times. His 428 runs, 117 homers, and 402 RBI were all career highs. Trout won his third consecutive MVP, but he did not lead the league in hits. That honor belongs to Christian Toribio, whose 360 hits give him 922 for his 3-year career. Trout’s career WAR of 78.3 now exceeds Joe Dimaggio.

2020: WAR – 26.8

Trout began the season on a good note, with an unprecedented 71 game hitting streak. For the fourth straight year, Trout was MVP and world champion. His 119 home runs are a new career high, and he now has 460 in his career. Trout hit exactly .600, his fourth consecutive year reaching that mark. His 2.144 OPS is a career best as well. But one stat stands out to me as being most impressive of all. Trout has played 24 months now in the Pecos League. He was named Player of the Month in all 24 of those months. Mike Trout is destroying the game of baseball. His career WAR of 105.2 now exceeds Christy Mathewson.

2021: WAR – 31.4

It was more of the same for Trout in 2021, his age 24 season. He won the MVP, league championship, and all 6 Player of the Month Awards. He hit 107 homers and drove in 298 runs, a number that astonishingly didn’t lead the league. That’s because his cleanup hitter Leurys Vargas drove in 381 batters and was worth 20.2 WAR. Despite Trout and Vargas’ best efforts, league offense was down across the board. League ERA was 4.95, a full 2 and a half points down from its peak in 2019. As a result, Trout’s league-adjusted OPS+ was an eye-popping 380. His career WAR of 136.6 now exceeds Stan Musial.

The Fuego are by far the most profitable team in the league. They have won 5 consecutive league championships and have the best player in the league. Thanks to this sudden influx of money, Santa Fe was able to sign a household name as their manager. Beginning in 2022, Joe Girardi will be the skipper of the Fuego. His unprecedented $6000 per year contract is nearly 5 times as lucrative as the contracts of the league’s highest paid players.

2022: WAR – 30.3

Trout played in a career high 161 games in 2022, and he reached base at an absurd rate. His batting average and OBP were .628 and .760 respectively, both career highs. Unfortunately, his power dipped. Trout hit a mere 91 home runs in 2022, the first time he failed to crack 100 in his career. His 63 stolen bases were also a career low. But this dip cannot be attributed to Trout. Due to the decrease in the quality of his teammates, Trout had only 788 plate appearances this season. While that number may seem high by MLB standards, it is to this point the lowest of his career.

Besides Trout, Leurys Vargas is the closest this league has to a superstar. In real life, Vargas washed up in 2015 after hitting .180 over 3 seasons in rookie ball for the Mariners. However, he is dominant in our world. He slashed .516/.582/.849 in 2022, finishing second only to Trout in each statistic. For the second year in a row, he was the runner-up for MVP. In no other player is the absurdity of Santa Fe’s ballpark more evident. In the year before joining the Fuego, Vargas hit 38 home runs. In the year after leaving, he hit 47. As a member of the Fuego in 2021, Vargas hit an astonishing 104 home runs. But after leaving, his OPS+ actually went up. Speaking of going up, Trout’s career WAR of 166.9 now exceeds Barry Bonds and Walter Johnson.

2023: WAR – 32.3

Offense has plummeted league-wide. Teams hit .238 on average in 2023, a far cry from its peak of .341 in 2019. Trout’s average dipped to .566, the first time that figure was below .600 in his career. However, his OPS+ of 412 was a new career high. But Trout may not have even been the best hitter in the league. That’s because Leurys Vargas, back in Santa Fe, had a season for the ages. Vargas led the Pecos League with 129 home runs, a better figure than Trout has ever put up. His 30.6 WAR very nearly won him MVP. But it did win him something else. Vargas won Player of the Month in June and July, snapping Trout’s streak at 38 straight months. Vargas’ raw ratings don’t even approach Trout’s, so I have no idea how he is able to be so successful. Meanwhile, Trout’s career war of 199.2 exceeds every player in the history of Major League Baseball. He turned 27 in August.

2024: WAR – 34.8

Mike Trout had undeniably his best season yet. His slash line of .650/.784/1.498 set career highs in all 3 categories. He passed Barry Bonds by hitting his 764th career home run on April 5th, his third of the game. He won his 8th consecutive MVP and league championship, but failed to win the triple crown for the second year in a row. There is a long list of things Trout has accomplished. He has 5 separate 40-game hitting streaks, including one of 71 games. He has 4 separate 4 home run games. But one thing has mostly eluded him. Trout has only hit for the cycle once in his career. It’s surprising, but there could be a few reasons behind this. Trout does not hit many triples; 2023 was the only season in which he led the league. He also walks a ton. Trout had only 468 at bats this season, and he frequently wouldn’t even get four chances in a game to put the ball in play.

2023 home run champion Leurys Vargas spent the entire season as a free agent. For some reason, teams refused to sign him. Perhaps they thought his $1400 contract demand was too steep. The only player consistently able to challenge Trout sat out a full year. He signed with the California City Whiptails for league minimum in 2025.

2025: WAR – 36.9

Like a rocket, Trout continues to rise. In his age-28 season, Trout posted an absurd .712 batting average and .837 OBP. His OPS+ has risen for the 7th straight year, this time to 494. Trout was nearly 5 times as productive as the league average hitter. He also stole 94 bases, his highest total in 4 years. His 831 career steals now exceed Tim Raines. He finished the season with 989 home runs and 2925 hits. For the first time in his career, Trout had more walks than hits, by a score of 323 to 304.

2026: WAR – 37.0

Trout is simply unstoppable. After his 10th consecutive league championship and MVP, people are starting to think he may be the best player of all time. He set another record with his .718 batting average. Trout also made two important milestones in his age-29 season. He recorded his 3000th career hit as well as his 1100th career home run. He hit home runs in 10 straight games, stretching from September 2025 into April of this season. He stole 99 bases and was caught only twice. Barely 30 years old, Trout is worth more WAR than Willie Mays and Hank Aaron combined.

2027: WAR – 37.6

Trout had another typical year. He hit .690 with 126 home runs, giving him 1233 for his career. However, this time his teammates failed to step up. For the first time in his career, Mike Trout is not a world champion. The Fuego lost the World Series to the Bakersfield Train Robbers (remember them?) in 7 games. Trout still made his best effort, hitting .692 with 9 home runs in the series. However, one player outshone him, and I’m sure you can guess who it was.

Leurys Vargas was named series MVP after hitting 13 home runs in the 7 games. He now has 593 for his career and has been worth 145 WAR, despite missing a full season in his prime. It was Train Robbers’ shortstop Josh Bumgarner who won the series with a walk-off homer in the 10th inning of game 7. Following the game, dejected Fuego manager Joe Girardi said, “We played good ball, they just played better than us.” He immediately retired from the game of baseball and was never seen again. Mike Trout was not available for comment.

2028: WAR – 37.7

The Fuego began the 2028 season with a new manager: Dan Merklinger. The New Jersey native spent 6 seasons in Milwaukee and Colorado’s farm systems, reaching as high as AAA for two brief stints. He most recently spent 2027 as the pitching coach of a Roswell Invaders team that went 37-125.

This inexperience didn’t seem to hurt Santa Fe. After a slow start, the Fuego got hot down the stretch and won their 11th title in 12 years. After signing a whopping $2500/year extension, Mike Trout had one of his best seasons yet. He stole a career high 130 bases, but he still is nearly 300 behind Rickey Henderson in his career. He won yet another triple crown and set a career best in WAR for the 6th consecutive season. His career WAR is 383.2, and people are starting to wonder if he can reach 1,000 for his career. He just turned 32, and only seems to be improving.

On defense, Trout remains valuable as well. He actually started 4 games at catcher in the 2028 season and was worth a positive UZR. There is simply nothing that Mike Trout cannot do.

2029: WAR – 37.2

It was another strong offensive showing for Trout. He reached base at an .800 clip for the fifth consecutive season. Now a veteran, Trout has been called upon to act as a leader on his team. Unfortunately, it has not worked. Following an 89-73 season, the Fuego failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in Trout’s career. They finished 4th in the division and posted the worst ERA in the entire league. The Trinidad Triggers, a team with potentially an even worse logo than the Train Robbers, were the league champions.

8nmn74a

Following the disappointing season, Fuego manager Dan Merklinger was fired and replaced by longtime hitting coach Scott Seabol. A former 88th round draft pick, Seabol hit .219 with 1 home run for the 2005 Cardinals.

In milestone news, Trout reached 400 WAR, 4000 hits, 1200 stolen bases, and 1400 home runs. His career batting average is a cool .643.

2030: WAR – 35.6

On April 3rd, Mike Trout slapped his 4257th hit, passing Pete Rose to become the all time hit king. He is slowly working his way up every statistical list in the game. He has been worth 2.5x as much WAR as Babe Ruth. Yet some feats elude him. He will never be the all time triples leader; Sam Crawford’s 309 is simply too high a number. He has never managed 7 hits in a game, and he has only hit for the cycle once. He has yet to match his famed 71-game hitting streak, set when he was a decade younger. But most importantly, Mike Trout has never pitched in the Pecos League. He has done anything a hitter could realistically or unrealistically hope to achieve in a major league career. All he wants to do is step on the mound and pitch, but his managers have never given him the chance. He still believes he will be able to one day, but at age 34, his confidence diminishes by the season. It appears evident at the end of 2030 that Trout’s mind is elsewhere. Despite his 37.3 WAR, and despite his team’s 122-40 record, the Fuego lose to the High Desert Yardbirds in the league championship.

2031: WAR – 38.9

For the third consecutive season, Mike Trout is not a world champion. The Fuego finished 84-78, despite the best efforts of their star player. Trout hit 125 home runs, the second highest total of his career. Hitting was down again throughout the league as a whole. Despite his OBP being his lowest in 8 seasons, Trout set a new career high with a 498 OPS+. At ages 34 and 35, Trout hit the best in his entire career. Additionally, Trout hit his second cycle on July 12th, going 4-5 in a win over Trinidad. He has now won 15 consecutive MVPs, and 88 of 90 Player of the Month Awards, his only two losses coming to Leurys Vargas in back-to-back months in 2023.

Speaking of which, Vargas retired at age 32, following the 2029 season. His 3381 hits, 711 homers, and 182.5 WAR are all second only to Trout. I’ve noticed a pattern of players retiring in the middle of their prime because their contract demands become far too expensive for any Pecos League team to afford, and there is no other league for them to play for. One of the best examples of this is pitcher Ben Lydon. In the year 2024, only his second season, Lydon struck out 515 batters in 40 starts for the Tucson Saguaros, a league record. Then, he became a free agent and was never heard from again. He officially retired three seasons later. No player has played long enough to appear on the Hall of Fame ballot. Former catcher Jake Holland will almost certainly be the first inductee following the 2032 season, and Vargas should follow suit a couple years later.

2032: WAR – 36.7

35 years old on Opening Day, Trout switched positions for the first time in his career. With his speed not what it once was, he made the natural transition from center field to left field, where he flourished. Mike Trout put together quite possibly his best season at the plate yet. His .739 batting average and .838 OBP are both career highs. He managed a 67 game hitting streak. He won his 10th triple crown and 16th MVP. Unfortunately, his 114-win Fuego lost in the league championship series, and have now gone 4 consecutive years without a title.

On the final day of the season, Trout sat at 1405 career stolen bases, 1 shy of Rickey Henderson’s career mark. He stole second base in the 3rd inning to thunderous applause, and broke the record in the 7th with another steal. Mike Trout is the greatest of all time in yet another category. The only major league records he needs to break are Tris Speaker’s 792 doubles: a number he should best in 2033, and Sam Crawford’s 309 triples: a number he has no chance of beating. Trout smiles and acknowledges the feat, but he knows all he wants to do is get just one chance to pitch.

2033: WAR – 22.7

During the offseason, catcher Jake Holland became the first player inducted into the Pecos League Hall of Fame. Holland is a real person. He is a legitimate high school catching prospect, currently committed to play for the University of Miami. But with Major League Baseball no longer existing, Holland was forced to take his talents to the Pecos League, and he made the most of it. Despite the fact that he hit .453 in his career, and despite the fact that he was worth 113.5 WAR, and despite the fact that he was the only player on the ballot, Holland received only 94.2% of the vote. Regardless, he is one of the best players in Pecos League history. When he becomes a major leaguer in 6 years, you all can now say you heard of him first.

Mike Trout finally suffered the first injury of his career. Trout played only 108 games, missing over a month of the season due to chronic back soreness. His team failed to make the league championship despite their 107-55 record. But even with his injuries, Mike Trout was the best player in the league by a longshot. He slashed .663/.781/1.293 en route to his 17th consecutive MVP. He definitely is starting to look his age. His 58 home runs are over 30 fewer than his next lowest season total. His slugging percentage was also a career worst. Could this nagging injury be the beginning of Mike Trout’s downfall?

2034: WAR – 32.6

Trout had a bounceback season at the plate in 2024, his age 37 season. His slugging numbers are down, but he still reached base at an .817 clip. He ended the season on a 55-game hitting streak, and only struck out 21 times, compared to 296 walks. Most excitingly, Trout and the Fuego won the Pecos League Championship for the 12th time and first time since 2028. Unfortunately, Trout has become a defensive liability in left field. His zone rating of -30.2 was the third worst in the league. Although he has won 4 gold gloves, Trout’s glove is seriously costing the Fuego. His career WAR of 587.0 is higher than the three best major league players of all time combined.

2035: WAR – 28.1

At ages 38 and 39, Trout continues to get on base at an elite rate. He hit .626 with a .768 OBP in his 19th consecutive MVP season. He hit his 2000th career home run in early August, but his 67 were a career low for a full season. Additionally, his 1.909 OPS is a career low. Halfway through the season, manager Scott Seabol decided to move Trout from the outfield to first base, where he could do less damage. It seemed to work, as Trout cost his team only 6.5 runs in 81 games at first, as opposed to 11.8 runs in 79 games in left. Unfortunately, during the championship, Trout and his teammates went cold. The Fuego were swept by the 121-41 Monterey Amberjacks. A 16-10 victory gave Monterey their first title in franchise history. Mike Trout will turn 40 during the upcoming season, and while he has shown some signs of slowing down, he is still the undisputed king of the Pecos League.

2036: WAR – 22.3

At age 40, Trout’s status as the best player in the league is in doubt. He won the MVP and league championship, but teammate Juan Balderrama finished only 3 WAR behind, thanks to his 125 home runs. Trout’s on base percentage dipped below .700 for the first time, to .697. His .539 average, .895 slugging, and 51 home runs were all career lows. Now a full time first baseman, Trout enters his 21st season hoping for a bounceback.

2037: WAR – 22.7

Trout posted yet another MVP season in 2037. His average and on base percentage shot back up to .582 and .734, and he played in all 162 games. However, his power is all but gone. Trout hit only 20 home runs in a full season at the biggest hitters’ park in North America. His eye remains his greatest asset. Trout walked 299 times over the course of the season, the 5th highest total of his career. He has now walked 5856 times, over twice as much as Barry Bonds.

2038: WAR – 20.4

Another year, another MVP for Mike Trout. He hit .557 with a .715 OBP. The gap is getting closer though between Trout and everyone else. His OPS+ of 252 was the lowest of his career. He hit his 2100th career homer early in the season, but his 22 homers were 6th on his team. Trout will be 42 years old on Opening Day next season. His career WAR sits at 680.5. He has been over 10 times as valuable as Ernie Banks.

2039: WAR – 16.5

For the third consecutive season, Trout played all 162 games for the Fuego. He set career lows across the board, but still managed to win his 23rd MVP award. He recorded his 7000th career hit on May 23rd, and he finished the season with 999 career doubles. His power continues to dip. Trout hit only 15 home runs in 2039. Despite his old age, he has not had any injury problems in 6 years, and he has never failed to hit above .500.

2040: WAR – 13.3

For the first time in his career, Mike Trout is not the best player in the Pecos League. His .430 batting average and .619 OBP both led the league, but it was teammate Joey White who won MVP. White hit .317 with 94 homers and a league leading 16.7 WAR. 35 players have hit at least 70 home runs in a season in the Pecos League. All 35 did so in a Santa Fe Fuego uniform.

Following the 2040 season, the Fuego hired a new manager. Former Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel took over the team, and began telling stories of a bygone era. An era of baseball in which teams stretched from coast to coast, players made millions upon millions of dollars, and a player named Mike Trout dominated the league. Well, that last one isn’t so far-fetched.

2041: WAR – 13.6

Trout is not dead yet. In his age 44-45 season, Trout won yet another MVP. His 1.172 OPS led the league, as did his WAR. Though he only hit 8 home runs, Trout reached base at a .640 clip. In his 25 Pecos League seasons, Trout has never posted an OBP lower than Barry Bonds’ historic .609 mark from 2004. Rumors are swirling that Trout will play forever, and so far, I don’t see any evidence to the contrary.

2042: WAR – 13.4

Trout only hit 2 home runs in 2042 and posted a pedestrian .528 slugging percentage. However, his batting average and on base percentage rose for the third straight year, to .468 and .642. For the first time in his career, Trout played for a losing team. The Fuego finished 76-86, 18 games behind the Garden City Wind. He is no longer singlehandedly able to carry his team to the playoffs, but Trout is still a top 5 player in the Pecos League. He returns for another season.

2043: WAR – 13.2

Trout had another nearly identical season, batting .464 with a .643 OBP, but without a single home run. I’m starting to think that this may be the absolute floor for Trout. He turned 47 late in the season, and he’s still hitting well over .400 while being worth 13 wins. He has yet to have a season worse than his best MLB seasons. Purely out of habit, Mike Trout returns to Santa Fe for a 28th season.

2044: WAR – 11.9

For the first time, Trout’s career batting average dropped below .600. He hasn’t reached that plateau in 10 years, but he still managed to hit .400 again. Trout only had 19 extra base hits all season, but his 271 walks are his most in 6 years. He won his 14th championship, but hit only .211 in the series.

2045: WAR – 11.6

After a slow start, Trout once again shot to the top of the leaderboards. As the baseball equivalent of an old man, Trout led the Pecos League in WAR. He hit below .400 for the first time in his career, but his OBP was a still-incredible .613. He has led the league in both of those stats every season of his career. Though he hasn’t hit a home run in 3 years, Trout wants to come back for one more ride. He has more WAR than any player in MLB history has home runs. He has 3 times as many home runs as Babe Ruth, twice as many stolen bases as Tim Raines, and almost twice as many hits as Ty Cobb. He has accomplished everything a baseball player could hope to do in a career. Well, almost everything.

2046: WAR – 12.0

Before the season, Mike Trout announced that 2046 would be his final season in the Pecos League. He will be 50 in August, and frankly, he’s getting tired of beating up on this inferior competition. Undeniably the best player in league history, Trout is ready to embark on his grand retirement tour. If anyone’s earned it, he has.

It was a great final season for Trout. Though he once again failed to hit a single home run, he batted .398 with a .629 on base percentage. Going into the final game of the season, the Fuego have long since been eliminated from postseason contention. Trout realizes this is his last chance. Before the game, he goes into manager Dallas Keuchel’s office and asks him a question. Keuchel says yes. For the September 23rd game against the Trinidad Triggers, Mike Trout will bat third… as the Santa Fe Fuego starting pitcher.

In the top of the first, Trout flies out to left field to end the inning. Butterflies fluttering in his stomach, he sprints directly to the mound, still wearing his batting helmet. After Trout finally gets settled, Trinidad second baseman Sean Pawloski walks out of the dugout, tips his cap toward the mound, and steps into the box. Trout throws the first pitch. It’s a 74 mph fastball, not bad for a 50-year-old first baseman, that Pawloski takes a big hack at. But it’s just a ground ball. The shortstop scoops it up and throws it to first. One out. Maybe this pitching thing isn’t so difficult.

After giving up a single, Trout forces Luis Flores to hit into an inning ending double play. Smiling from ear to ear as he walks off the mound, Trout decides that he wants to pitch all 9 innings, no matter what happens. With 2 outs in the 3rd inning, things start to unravel. After allowing a pair of singles, Trout walks 3 consecutive batters before inducing a popout. The Fuego trail 2-0 through 3.

Trout walks in the top of the 4th and scores on a Sam Broadwell single. After a rally, Santa Fe ties the game up, and Trout walks back to the mound with the score tied at 2 apiece. Trout allows one run in the 4th and pitches a perfect 5th. Heading into the 6th, Trout has thrown 99 pitches. The Triggers stage a rally, scoring 8 runs. Trout has now thrown 150 pitches, but he draws on all his strength to walk out for the 7th inning. He labors in every delivery, yet he still manages to strike out Kevin Soper on his 177th pitch of the day to end the inning. Exhausted but thankful for the experience, Trout realizes he doesn’t need to pitch to the end of the game. More accurately, he knows he probably can’t. He has walked 10 batters and allowed 15 runs to score. Yet Mike Trout is happier than he has been in his entire career. He has just done the one thing he has always wanted to do. His entire life, Trout has been the best at everything he has done. It was oddly refreshing for him to finally try something, and be absolutely awful at it. With a tear in his eye, 50-year-old Mike Trout walks off the field and into the desert sunset for the final time.
