Hello, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skating was just 27 when he kicked the bucket sadly toward the beginning of July. While the official cause of death will not be known until the fall autopsy (the police have ruled out foul play and suicide), his death has shaken his teammates.
The Angels honored Skaggs Friday in their first home game since his passing, and it was an exciting night for everyone. His mother threw the first pitch, everyone on the team wore his No. 45 shirt, and in a moment of well-being that you could not even believe in a movie, the team released a game without hits, just a few hours before what happened . it would have been his birthday… Video Twiter
The Angels were not playing and the numbers were never far from the memory of Skaggs. Mike Trout hit a homer in the first pitch he saw, hitting him 454 feet (Skaggs wore No. 45). The Angels scored 7 runs in the first inning and 13 runs in total (Skaggs’ birthday is 7/13). This was the first game without hits in the state of California since July 13, 1991. That was the same day that Skaggs was born, yes, California. unbelievably Video
It was a magical night, an emotional tribute to a player who got lost too early and a reminder that sports can be good.

The celebration tour of the USWNT seems to be still going on, from the dressing room celebrations in France to the Ticker tape parade in New York, an award-winning appearance on the ESPYs, and appearances on late-night television for the captains (in what they talked about how exhausting the party can be). The United States team is enjoying its moment in the spotlight, and rightly so.

And the legendary CNN news network ran a story with the very respectable headline of “Look at Alex Morgan Twerk!”, Which is very strange to see in a news source.
