Mike Trout Just Homered Wearing a Tyler Skaggs’ Uniform

Baseball Is Fun

Mike Trout has hit a lot of home runs in his career, but I doubt any will be more memorable than this one.

Earlier tonight, the Anaheim Angels paid tribute to Tyler Skaggs in their first game at Angel Stadium since he passed away earlier this month.

In addition to a pregame ceremony, much of which you can see at the end of this post, every single Angels player wore Skaggs’ No. 45 jersey. But one man, Mike Trout, did a little more than that. On his very first pitch of the night, Trout hit a deep home run.

Which I’m sure felt extremely special and emotional:

Unbelievable.

Here’s the pregame ceremony, including Trout bringing Skaggs’ framed jersey to the center of field for a moment of silence.
