Both the MLB and former teammate Mike Trout honored the late Tyler Skaggs during the MLB midsummer classic. Before the first pitch on Tuesday night, the MLB and Clevland Indians held a moment of silence in remembrance of the young pitcher.

In addition to that, all of the players wore a patch on their jerseys with the number “45” on them.

Angels center fielder Mike Trout and infielder Tommy La Stella both wore number 45 during the all-star game.

The cause of death to the young lefty is still unknown.
