The Los Angeles Angels paid an emotional tribute to late pitcher Tyler Skaggs on Friday night, including when the player’s mom threw the ceremonial pitch at Angel Stadium as the team fittingly recorded a no-hitter win.

Skaggs was found dead in his hotel room in Texas on July 1st at the age of 27, sending shock and grief throughout the baseball community.   

The Angels were playing the Seattle Mariners in their first home game on Friday night since the tragedy, and marked the occasion with numerous tributes to their former star.

Skaggs’ mother, Debbie Hetman, threw the first pitch of the night, while the mound had the number 45 worn by Skaggs on it.
