Angels Pitcher Adenhart Killed After Ball Game

Posted Apr 9th 2009 10:49AM by TMZ Staff

TMZ has learned Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed in a felony hit-and-run car accident in Fullerton, California early this morning – hours after he pitched in a game last night.

Cops say someone driving a minivan blew through a red light, causing the Mitsubishi that Adenhart and three others were riding in to hit a light pole. Three of the four people in the Mitsubishi were killed in the crash – Nick, another man and a woman – while the fourth occupant remains in the hospital.

Cops say the person driving the van fled the scene – but was later caught and charged with felony hit-and-run. The suspect is also being treated for injuries in a local hospital.

We're told one of the other men killed in the crash was also affiliated with the Angels organization.

Nick was 22 years old.

FYI – Nick pitched his ass off last night, striking out 5 guys in 6 scoreless innings. His performance was hailed by sportswriters as a "brilliant effort by a 22-year-old right-hander making his fourth Major League start."

Re: LA Angels starting pitcher killed after last nights game

What a shame! 22 years old. Usually when you hear news like this it's drugs or he was drinking and driving or driving at excess speeds. For once a kid that seemed to have his head on straight. He must have been feeling on top of the world last night. Just got done pitching for a MLB team and then this happens.

I agree glad they got that SOB!
