Angel's Nick Adenhart Killed by Hit and Run Driver

He just pitched last night. Six scoreless innings. So sad. And look at him. He looks like a kid still. Well, he is only 22. All three people in the car with him were killed when a van blew through a red light. This better not be a drunk driver.
Here are the official statements:
Adenhart is survived by his father Jim and mother Janet. His family released the following statement:
"Nick's family expresses sincere gratitude for all the help the Angels have provided. He lived his dream and was blessed to be part of an organization comprised of such warm, caring, and compassionate people. The Angels were his extended family. Thanks to all of Nick's loyal supporters and fans throughout his career. He will always be in everyone's hearts forever."
Angels General Manager Tony Reagins issued the following statement on behalf of the club:"The Angels family has suffered a tremendous loss today. We are deeply saddened and shocked by this tragic loss. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Nick's family, friends' loved ones and fans."
