Terrible Tragedy hits the baseball world
UPDATE: I apologize, Nick was pitching for the major league club, he just made his fourth career start last night and was the #3 starter on the team because of the injuries on the staff. This incident happened after the game around 12:30am.
A terribly tragedy hit the baseball world this morning. 22 year old Angels pitcher Nick Adenhardt was killed in a car accident. He made his first start of the year in the minors yesterday. His car was struck by a vehicle that ran a red light and it was a hit and run. He was killed with someone else in the Angels organization which no one knows who it is yet. Edwar Ramirez, Jose Molina and Mark Teixera were all with the Angels, Tex didn't play with him but knew of him. They were all shocked by this as I am sure everyone else was also.
