My son and I watched Nick pitch last night as I told him of DelDad's presence on the HSBBWEB. My prayers go out to the Adenhart family.
I am just devastated by this horrble news. To Deldad and his wife Janet, I am so sorry. I can't imagine the pain of losing a child.

I hope in some small way the good folks of this board can be of comfort to them.
Here was a recent post by deldad that I really enjoyed:

Anatomy of a GOOD high school parent:

The five tools-

1. A mouth that only utters positive things about the team.

2. A tongue that refuses to wag.

3. Eyes that are not covered with rose colored lenses

4. Hands that fit a rake.

5. A mind that has the capability of seeing the BIG PICTURE.
I like to think there is a bigger plan for all of us however at times like this all I can do is ask WHY?

I hope and pray the Adenhart family can find answers to help them deal with their tragic loss. May Nick rest in peace.

Deldad my heart aches for you.

This is just so very, very sad.

Just the other day a freshman at USC was killed by a hit and run driver and now more senseless deaths in the same horrific fashion.

My deepest sympathies. There just really are no words but to take some comfort in the fact that this young man had accomplished so much and had realized his dream. Frown

May he rest in peace.

I heard this terrible news on MLB radio about 1 1/2 hours heart goes out for Nick's family and for the families of the others involved. I am shocked and saddened by this loss.
Last summer I sat with Nick's Mom and Uncle and watched him pitch a AAA game in Portland. I've never met Deldad in person, but I have talked with him on the phone and chatted with him in the chat room many times.

They are wonderful people. No one deserves this, but especially not them.
I just saw the news report and headed straight to the HSBBW. I'm shocked and saddened as others have expressed. Deldad, Janet, all family members and friends my heartfelt prayers and deepest sympathy. Words are inadequate at this time but may the Holy Spirit comfort you during this difficult time.
Words can not express how I feel right now. I got to know Deldad very well. He is a tremendous man. My heart is broken for him and his family. Quite honestly I am sick over it. Everyone please pray for Deldad and his family. Pray that God will intervene and give them strength.
If anyone hears of a fund/charity or a way to send flowers, please post.

My wife and I are sick to our stomach. Want to do something to help provide the teeniest of comfort if possible.

As TPM posted, Nick's father is a wonderful man...very humble. He helped me immensely with helpful and encouraging words when our son was injured. I want to reach back if its possible.

My prayers continue.
My thoughts and prayers are with Nick's family and friends today as they attempt to understand this tragedy.

Prayers for Nick's family.

Prayers for his friends. There are many here who are hurting.

God bless.
This is heartbreaking:
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."

I am heartbroken to learn of this horrific tragedy that words cannot describe. I will be praying for the Adenhart family. For the presence of the Peace that Passes all Understanding.

May you find comfort in the love and support of your family and find some comfort from those here on the hsbbweb who are praying for you and your family.
Senseless, Senseless......there are no words that suffice. Deldad was one of the first people I spoke two years ago when my son went thru TJ surgery. I'm sure he doesn't remember and I am but a very small piece of all he has touched here on this site. RIP.

I was just on the phone with a friend who asked me if I had heard about the pitcher with the Angels that had died and it hit me that it was Nick............

I said Nick and the friend said Adenhart.

I am just stunned..............

I just posted about him last night.

God of us all, your love never ends. When all else fails, you still are God.
We pray to you for this family and friends who are in your hands, and for all, everywhere, who mourn with us this day.
To those who doubt, give light;
To those who are weak, strength;
To all who sorrow, your peace.
Keep true in us the love which we ask you to bestow on the Adenhart’s in this their time of need.
In all our ways we trust you. And to you, on earth and in heaven, we offer honor and glory, now and forever.

My condolences to the Adenhart family, the families of the others killed and injured and to the Angels family.
i'm speechless.............................
our thoughts and prayers are with the Adenharts.
There are no words to describe my feelings when I learned of this news.
As I listened to the Angels GM describe how this 22 year old impacted every person on the team and in the front office with his leadership and presence, it was touching, heartfelt and conveyed so much about this wonderful person.
I am so saddened to be typing this post.
deldad and family, please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
I just heard the news, and my heart goes out to the Adenhart family. It is so senseless and tragic. We will be praying for Nick and the rest of the Adenharts. He was just too young for this to have happened.
What a tragedy. I just heard the news, as well. Deldad please know that you and your family are in our prayers, and may your son rest in the arms of our Lord and Saviour.
Thoughts and prayers from my family to Deldad and his family. May you find strength and comfort during this difficult time.
