RIP Nick Adenhart: Tragic News From Anaheim

Scott FenderCorrespondent IApril 9, 2009

Tragic News from Anaheim this morning. Nick Adenhart was pronounced dead after a hit and run following the game last night.

He was driving home with three others in his Mitsubishi when a driver in a white van ran a red light and struck Adenhart's vehicle, causing it to slam into a light pole. Two of the passengers died instantly while the other died in the hospital.

The driver of the van fled the scene but it has been reported that the driver was apprehended by police this morning.

Adenhart was a prized prospect, but more importantly a human being. My heart and soul go out to his family and friends and he will be missed by many.

Tragedy often befalls the sporting world, and when one does people rally together. I am currently speechless and am without much to write. I wish only strength and support for the Adenhart family. My prayers and thoughts go out to them.

RIP Nick Adenhart, an Angel no longer in the field but instead was promoted to God's staff today.
