Terrible news out of California this morning, where we've just learned that the Angels' Nick Adenhart was killed in an early morning hit-and-run accident in Fullerton on Thursday.
The news was first reported by TMZ and later confirmed by Yahoo! Sports baseball columnist Tim Brown.
Just 22 years old, Adenhart started for Los Angeles on Wednesday night and struck out five over six scoreless innings in a 6-4 loss to Oakland.
According to reports, Adenhart was driving home with three others in his Mitsubishi when a mini-van ran through a red light and hit Adenhart's car, causing it to crash into a light pole. Two passengers in the car died on the scene while another was pronounced dead at the hospital. The driver of the mini-van fled the scene, but was later apprehended by police.
This is the most tragic news you can imagine in the baseball world and our thoughts go out to Adenhart's family and the entire Angels' organization, which was already reeling from the death of a fan who was involved in a fight on Opening Day

"I have been labeled as the 'other woman' and have been accused of having caused the breakup of his marriage," an emotional Demaris Meyer told reporters. "Nothing could be further from the truth."
Freeman broke an arm and elbow. Meyer suffered broken bones and a head injury she said has led to short-term memory loss. Her lawsuit in Mississippi federal court claims a boozed-up Freeman, 71, was speeding.
Meyer admits she attended the party to meet the Oscar-winning star but said he was a "perfect gentleman" who offered to let her stay in a house on his property.
Lawyer Gloria Allred said Freeman has provided only "minimal" help to Meyer. His spokeswoman did not return a call.
