After the tragic loss of Nick Adenhart, my face is covered with tears. He was a great talent, and didn't give up after having a so-so season last year. He will always be remembered in the hearts of every baseball fan. As Torii said, Nick will still a kid, and he had a great career ahead of him.
Being a great person, Nick would probably want us to finish the season and win the World Series. No problem can bring us down in moments like these. Once a door closes, another one opens. Maybe in the most obscure way God is trying to tell us another opportunity for happiness is available. My heart goes out for Jim and Janet, his parents.
After you read this post, I want you to remember one thing: in times of desperation, make an extra push for Nick. Do that garbage in honor of him, work with more dedication, or play catch with your son instead of sleeping.Nick always sacrificed himself to help others. What I'm trying to say is life is too short. Make the extra burst every day because you know Nick is looking down on us from heaven.
I'm dedicating 2009 to Nicholas James Adenhart!
