  • LA Angels Throw No Hitter in Game Honoring Tyler Skaggs

Angels players had said before the game they were keeping Skaggs at the front of their minds while competing. To cap the ceremony, Skaggs' mother, Debbie, fired a flawless first pitch to Andrew Heaney, who was among Skaggs' best friends on the team.

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. "Just the way the game went, and culminating with a no-hitter, you feel it's partly Skaggy's no-hitter". The big stereo system in the room's center is silent because the affable left-hander who controlled the Angels' musical choices is no longer here.

"Tonight is about him", injured Angels infielder Zack Cozart said before the game. The reliever pounded his chest and pointed at the sky when Kole Calhoun caught the final out of the second. We're around each other all day, every day. Whether you're his teammate, part of his family, or just a fan like the rest of us, there's no forgetting what you're seeing right now.

There were cheers and tears Friday night at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif., before, during and after one of the most touching games in major league history. It's so sudden and so tragic.

After wining the incredibly emotional game, the Angels all returned to the pitcher's mound, upon which they laid all their #45 jersey in honor of Skaggs. "We love him, we miss him, and we're always going to be there for him".

All Angels players, coaches and even broadcasters were sporting a matching red home jersey emblazoned with the number 45, which is the number Skaggs had worn since rejoining the Angels prior to the 2014 season. Everybody has those moments, personal to them. "But for a lot of us, seeing each other again is nice". A picture of Skaggs was also included on the center-field wall and a video montage was provided on the scoreboard. Most of the Angels saw the memorial in person for the first time when they returned from a hard road trip and the ensuing All-Star break. "That's fine. We're human beings".
