Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout is honoring Tyler Skaggs during the All-Star Game on Tuesday … sporting the late pitcher’s #45 jersey when he takes the field.
Skaggs tragically died last week in his team hotel room in Texas. Details surrounding his death are still unclear … but the news shook many teams, players and managers throughout the MLB.
Trout — who usually wears #27 — and injured Angels infielder Tommy La Stella will don Skaggs’ digits on their backs during Tuesday night’s ASG as a tribute to their teammate.
Trout shared his condolences last week … saying “Words cannot express the deep sadness we feel right now.”
“Remembering him as a great teammate, friend, and person who will forever remain in our hearts… we love you, 45.”
The Angels have also been wearing #45 patches on their jerseys to honor Skaggs … and dedicated their first win following his death to him.
