Tyler Skaggs’ wife Carli Skaggs was a beloved wife. We don’t see it often on this site, but with Carli Skaggs, it was different. Prior to his sudden and shocking passing at the age of 27, Tyler was easy to heap praise and adoration on Carli on his social media.
To say that Tyler and Carli enjoyed their time together is an understatement. They traveled the world together and shared some of their travels on Instagram. In November of 2017, Tyler dropped to one knee and proposed to Carli while vacationing in Bora Bora. The woman who would soon become Tyler Skaggs’ wife obviously said yes.
They did purchase a home in Tyler’s home town in Santa Monica and had intentions to start a family.
The stress of a Player’s Wife
WealthManagement.com did a feature on the couple in early April of 2019. Most of the article talks about how the couple was positioning themselves financially. But, Tyler Skaggs’ wife noted it’s not always easy being a WAG:
“Being a so-called baseball wife has a stress all its own,” says Carli. “Since Tyler’s regularly on the move, we lack that traditional stability.”
Following Tyler’s untimely passing, the Angels made it clear that the Skaggs’ would forever be part of the Angels family.
“It is with great sorrow that we report Tyler Skaggs passed away earlier today in Texas.
Tyler has, and always will be an important part of the Angels Family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Carli and his entire family during this devastating time.
