Nick Adenhart 1986-2009

April 10, 2009



Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart was among three people killed in a crash in Fullerton, California, early Thursday, according to the team and a hospital spokesman.

Adenhart, 22, of Silver Spring, Maryland, died at UC Irvine Medical Center, according to spokesman John Murray.

“The Angels family has suffered a tremendous loss today,” Tony Reagins, the team’s general manager, said in a written statement. “We are deeply saddened and shocked by this tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nick’s family, friends, loved ones and fans.”

Being a 22 year old recent college graduate, this story really hit home for me. Almost every young boy grows up dreaming of being a professional athlete. Nick Adenhart was one of Major League Baseball’s premier prospects coming out of the Angels farm system and finally got his chance to become a Major League pitcher. In his first start of the season last night, he showed why he would live up to his huge potential by throwing 6 innings of shut out baseball. This is such a sad story and our prayers go out to his friends and family.
