While paying tribute to their star player, Los Angeles Angles tweeted in their official Twitter account,

Texas Rangers also expressed their heartfelt condolence and said,

"The Texas Rangers organization wants to express its deepest sympathies to the family of Tyler Skaggs and to the entire Angels organization on this shocking loss."

Angles manager, Billy Eppler while holding down on tears stated,

“I’m in utter shock and disbelief. “It’s just a very tragic day for the Angels, a tragic day for his wife, Carli, his mother Debbie, (and for) Carli’s mom."

What's more tragic is that Tyler just last year got married to the love of his life, Carlii Skaggs. The couple had no children.

Furthermore, his mother, who is a softball coach at a school has suffered a serious affliction. For any parent, especially mother, burying their child with their own hands is quite a painful moment.

Initially, Tyler had made his MLB debut on August 22, 2012, for the Arizona Diamondbacks for two years, 2012 and 2013. The Angels, previously, drafted him back in 2009.

In this hour of sadness, we would like to exhibit our deepest sympathy for the Skaggs family and May his soul rest in piece!
