What an unbelievable game to be a part of. The well-liked pitcher controlled the Angels' clubhouse stereo system with an iron fist, but he also eagerly shared pointers and encouragement with his teammates - including Peña, who repeatedly thought about Skaggs' constant exhortations to focus while he completed the no-hitter.
