    Great story. But I feel like the 454 foot home run connecting to the number 45 is a bit forced.

    It’s cool that they threw a no no their first night back, honoring him and momma throwing out the pitch.

    Also very cool the last combined no hitter they threw was the day he was born.

    The Trout homer distance was brought up during the game and it being 454 like Skaggs’ number. I heard about 7/13 being his bday but thought it was significant cause it was the next day.

    I think it is awesome that they threw a no-hitter and his mom threw out the first pitch and they tributed him by placing their jerseys on the mound. Everything else is just combing through baseball stats, which there are plenty of, and trying to shoehorn crap in to add to it. No need for the additional. It was an awesome night and the other stuff sounds silly because there are no exact matches.

    it’s pretty common for grieving people to seek solace in symbolism.

    We can both agree on that. I am guessing that we will continue to disagree about the “symbols” they tried to dig up though.

    This moment and Dee Gordon’s HR after Fernandez’s death are some of the best moments in baseball. All the symbols are cool but just the fact that these moments happened are what matters.
