The Hagerstown Suns, the Low-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals honored the late Nick Adenhart with a night in his honor as they took on the Lexington Legends. Adenhart’s mother Janet Gigeous threw out the first pitch, a plaque honoring Adenhart was placed on the Suns Wall of Fame, and a silent auction was held to raise money for the Nick Adenhart Foundation. The late Los Angeles Angels pitcher was killed by a drunk driver hours after pitching six scoreless innings against the Oakland Athletics in April 2009. He was a native of Williamsport MD which is located just a few miles from Hagerstown. In the story, Adenhart’s mother talks about the fun her son had growing up watching the Suns play, the memorial foundation created in his honor, and keeping his legacy alive through contributions to youth baseball.
