Nicholas James Adenhart
22-year-old rookie Nick Adenhart, along with two fellow passengers, was killed by a drunk driver early Thursday morning in a hit-and-run accident in Fullerton, California. Nick had just finished pitching six masterful, shut-out innings hours earlier and was considered the top prospect in the Angels organization. A moment of silence was observed before most Major League games and tonight's Angels/Athletics game was postponed.
What a needless and tragic loss for the Adenhart family, the Angels organization, and the entire baseball community.
Rest in peace, Nick.
