RIP Nick Adenhart - The 22 year old pitcher dead after a car accident late Wednesday night in Fullerton, California. Listen below for more of the still developing details as of Thursday morning. The accident took place only hours after the game, that ended after 10:20 PM Wednesday. A red minivan ran a red light, striking Adenhart's vehicle, killing three. The driver of that minivan tried to flee, and was later arrested by Fullerton police.
He pitched six incredible innings last night, his "shining moment". Adenhart was drafted in 2004, through ups and downs through the minor leagues, had his best career start against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday night in Anaheim.
The LA Angels will be holding a press conference at 10:30 AM PST, from Angels station
Hundreds of fans and supporters are showing up at the crime scene at the Orangethorpe / Lemon intersection of Fullerton, California.
I would like to think that Adenhart, at 22, called up once again to the Angels, my condolences to the family, the fans, and supporters.
Details broke yesterday that the two other passengers killed were Cal State Fullerton students. A second, separate car accident yesterday also critically injured a former Cal State Fullerton baseball player.
