Nick Adenhart, 1986-2009
Eric, who has been a loyal follower to my blog and who is my favorite Angels fan, left a comment in my last entry that touched me.
Baseball aside, the very human lesson is that we cherish every day as if it were our last. No one is immune to this reality so . . . live well, passionately, with kindness and appreciation. In my subconscious I know this to be true. We ALL know this to be true. It’s just sometimes I need a reminder how fleeting life really is. This tragic news today was that reminder for me, and hopefully many others.
No matter what our teams are, no matter if you watch the game from inside the dugout, press box, on the couch or in the stands, when baseball loses someone, we all mourn together as a community. It’s a community I am proud to be a part of in moments like these.
RIP Nick Adenhart and thank you for the reminder.
