Nick Adenhart Killed By Hit And Run Driver

Last night Nick Adenhart of the California Angels pitched six shutout innings against the Oakland Athletics. A few hours later he was killed by a hit and run driver. 



Nick Adenhart was killed in hit and run accident 

last night in Fullerton, California after game.


Adenhart had been pressed into action because of a rash of  injuries to Angels starters. He pitched well last night shutting the Oakland Athetics over six innings before the Angels bullpen allowed the Athletics to win the game 6-4. However this is not a time for baseball talk but a time to realize how fleeting life can be. Last night Adenhart had to feel very good about his performance on the mound but before he had much time to think about it he was taken away from us by a hit and run driver.

  1. How sad, how very sad. I hope they catch the person who did it.

    They mentioned on ESPN that he had told his family to come see him pitch last night because it was going to be special and he did pitch well but the sad part is that he will never pitch again.

    The driver had been been driving with a suspended license and had been warned by court not to drive drunk again or he would be charged with murder.

    Never a happy day to see a a life cut short, but especially one so young. My day began reading about Dustin Pedroia saying his home town was a dump, even though his family still resides there. Then I read this story and realize how young and ignorant these kids are. Life is fleeting and is best enjoyed while you have the opportunity.

    Dustin Pedroia shouldn’t have said that about his hometown being a dump. When things like this happen it makes me appreciate even more each day of life God gives us. I really feel sorry for the Angels players who saw that Adenhart was on the brink of becoming a star pitcher for years to come and one drunk driver ended his dream.
