Los Angeles Angels teammates Mike Trout and Tommy La Stella are wearing No. 45 in honor of the late Tyler Skaggs at the 2019 All-Star Game.

In addition to tribute from his teammates, Skaggs was honored with a moment of silence before first pitch, as well as with No. 45 patches on the uniform of every player participating in the game.

"I knew Tyler would want me to be here and represent the Angels", Trout said Monday, via USA Today. All these guys in here, I see these guys as more than my family. "It's gonna be good".

Skaggs, 27, was found unresponsive in his hotel room on July 1 as the Angels were in Texas to play the Rangers.

McNeil, who was in his first All-Star Game, came into the game as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning.

"It's gonna be I'm sure a very emotional night for all of us", La Stella said before the game. "I can't really thank the fans enough for creating that moment for me and making it really special". Defending All-Star game MVP Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros is listed at +2000.

"We thought it would be a good way to show some love and respect for Tyler", Trout said before the game, won by his American League squad, 4-3 over the National League.

Trout started in his seventh consecutive All-Star game along with Dodger players Cody Bellinger and Hyun-Jin Ryu, who made history at the first-ever South Korean-born pitcher to start the Midsummer Classic.

The crowd chanted "Let's Go Bieber", during his performance, and it's an anthem that will likely be heard each time he takes the mound going forward.

From 2003-2016 the All-Star game was used as a mechanism to decide home field in the World Series. Then commissioner Bud Selig and the Major League Baseball introduced the "This Time It Counts" slogan for the 2003 edition of the All-Star game. "I was trying to hold it together", Brantley said. Television people pay a lot of money for the game.
