CEREMONY: MLB Pitcher Nick Adenhart Honoured

10 April 2009 - According the Anaheim Angels' website:
"The Angels showed a video honoring Nick Adenhart with clips from his pitching performance just two days prior, and Torii Hunter and John Lackey held Adenhart's jersey on the mound during a moment of silence, as both teams lined up on the foul lines to remember 22-year-old who died in a car accident just hours after he pitched six scoreless innings on Wednesday."

Honouring the deceased through the pre-game field ceremony was just one way the Angels will be paying tribute to the pitcher this season. Players will also wear a patch with the No. 34 above the heart on both their home and road uniforms. The Angels put a picture of the pitcher on Anaheim's center-field fence, with No. 34 and "Adenhart" written above it. Adenhart's locker will also remain in the clubhouse with his jersey and belongings, and the team will also maintain a locker for Adenhart on the road.
