Grieving Angels return for 1st home game since Skaggs’ death

LA Angels Throw No Hitter in Game Honoring Tyler Skaggs

All of the Los Angeles Angels wore a no. 45 jersey Friday night to honor their late teammate Tyler Skaggs.

There was a touching pregame ceremony, where Tyler Skaggs mother delivered the ceremonial first pitch.

The baseball season's relentless pace forces the Angels to heal while they play, and they went back to work after a somber All-Star break during which Skaggs was honored at the game in Cleveland.

"We know for sure he was looking down on us".

Trout crushed a 454-foot, two-run homer to left-centre on the first pitch he saw from Leake.

"Everybody after the game, we're running out on the field and everybody's celebrating", Heaney said in a quote captured by MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger.

On a night when the all-too-short life of Tyler Skaggs was being remembered and celebrated at Angel Stadium of Anaheim, the Angels threw a combined no-hitter against the Mariners. She tossed a flawless strike to Tyler's close friend, Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney.


The Angels scored seven runs in the first to grab a huge lead and added two more in the second to go up 9-0. What an unbelievable game to be a part of. It has shown in the way the team has honored him to this point. The two-time AL MVP appeared to look toward Skaggs' family in the stands as he crossed the plate after an unusually long home run trot.

In the annual Freeway Series, the Dodgers are set to host the Angels a little over a week from now on July 23 and 24, so the tributes for Skaggs will likely continue at Dodger Stadium, a place he grew up going to watch games being born in Woodland Hills and attending Santa Monica High School.

When he came up again in the first inning with the bases loaded, Trout roped a two-run double to left field.

For the rest of the season, a No. 45 patch will remain on the player's jerseys, his locker will be kept intact and everywhere they go on the road, a locker will be left for him, Major League Baseball said.

"He's still a part of the team, even though he's not here", Angels manager Brad Ausmus said. And whether we notice or not, we kind of do the same stuff every single day.

"I think it's going to be tough this season", Trout said.
