Mike Trout's 454 foot home run in honor of Tyler Skaggs

Statcast: Trout’s Monster HR in Honor of Tyler Skaggs

On their first game in Anaheim since the death of Tyler Skaggs the entire team honored their friend by wearing #45 and the name Skaggs on their jerseys. The team put on an incredible performance by racking up 13 runs and shutting the Mariners down with a No-Hitter.

One writer was bold enough to say that he should be worth a billion dollars over 12 years (but he’s not getting it because of cultural norms). The Angels might be overpaying on the last few years of the deal, but at his current rate of production, they’ll be paying off earlier years of excess value.
