Before his death, Nick Adenhart was beginning to make a mark as a major league baseball player.
Now, many major league players are making marks on baseballs to remember the young pitcher.
The Hagerstown Suns will hold a benefit drawing beginning Saturday, featuring autographed baseballs from a number of major league baseball figures and present Suns players and coaches, to lend a hand in raising money for the Nick Adenhart Memorial Fund.
All proceeds from the drawing will go to the fund, which was created in the memory of the former Williamsport High and Los Angeles Angels pitcher. Adenhart and two friends were killed on April 9 in a three-car crash in Fullerton, Calif., shortly after he pitched the best game of his short major league career.
"The Hagerstown Suns are proud to be able to use our place in the community to contribute to a cause that is such a fitting tribute to the life of Nick Adenhart," Suns president and general manager Bob Flannery said. "This drawing will help kids close to home and across the country continue to play the game that Nick Adenhart loved."
