    CA - Angels pitcher, 2 friends killed by drunk driver, Fullerton, 9 April 2009

    Angels Starting Pitcher Killed After Ball Game


    Our local news was reporting that someone killed in the car crash was high profile, but were not reporting who that person was. TMZ is saying it was Nick Adenhart who pitched a gerat game last night.
    3 people were killed and this is another senseless tragedy.

    RIP all involved.

    My son is a die-hard Angels fan...I sent him a text message at work, he said his dad had beat me to it. He said Adenhart was one of the best minor league pitchers last year...22 years old. Just a baby.

    I think I heard another "person associated with the Angels" was also involved/killed? Sounds like next of kin hasn't been notified? Oh boy. Sad for the Angels team.

    And if the intial report is correct, all for the other driver running a red light. Glad to hear they caught the driver.

    What a tragic end to such a young man with a promising career/life ahead of him. Prayers to his family and the other families that lost their beloveds today.

    I love baseball and watched my son play from T-ball all the way to earning his letter his Senior year of High School. Nick is only a year younger than my son. What a tragic loss to baseball by such a thoughtless act.

    I watched the presser and LE stated that Nick had told his Dad that he'd better come to the game tonight because something very special was going to happen. About an hour and after the game ended, Nick was dead.

    My prayers go out to his family, his Angels family and his friends.

    May you rest in peace, Nick...you certainly earned your Halo while in this life!

    Absolutely tragic. I cannot imagine the pain for his family and friends as they watched him begin the dream of a lifetime this weekend only to have it cut down in such a senseless moment.

    Prayers for all who knew him. So sad.

    Alcohol a factor and the van driver is also 22.

    Wow that is so sad, 3 lives gone because someone didn't care enough about himself or anyone else. Why does the drunk driver always survive when others die? Prayers to all the families of the victims.
    I really hope Nick's dad went to that game??
