Angels Pitcher Killed in Hit and Run

The Los Angeles Angels may have a real angel looking down on them. Starting pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed last night in a hit in run.

Cops report that some one driving a mini van ran a red light causing Adenhart's Mitsubishi to crash into a pole. Three people were killed in the crash, including another member in the Angels organization.

The person driving the mini van fled the scene, but was later caught and charged with a hit and run. The driver of the mini van was reportedly drunk, and has a history of DUIs, and his license may have been suspended.

The 22 year old, Adenhart pitched 6 scoreless innings striking out five batters last night, hours before the crash.

It's a shame what happened to Adenhart. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends, and teammates. RIP.

This is terrible news. I just watched him on TV last night. I had interest in Adenhart, which was mainly fantasy baseball based, but he was surely an easy kid to root for.
