o Share your condolences and memories of Nick Adenhart on a page celebrating his life and accomplishments. o Los Angeles Angels' announcement of Adenhart's death Commentary My heart goes out to the family and friends of Nick Adenhart. I first heard about Nick when he was an 11-year-old pitcher for Halfway Little League. His All-Star team was coming over to play our team, Federal Little League. Even at 11, his reputation preceded him. I remember the coaches talking about this kid who could throw a baseball harder than anyone could recall.

When it came to Nick Adenhart, he had all the bases covered. In fact, every time Adenhart took the mound as a budding youth league pitcher, Warrenfeltz had the best seat in the house.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart, a 2004 Williamsport graduate, gave up four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out two in 3 1/3 innings Monday against San Francisco. "He's something. I like him a lot," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. Torii Hunter and Howie Kendrick had two-run doubles to lead the Angels to an 8-5 victory. Hunter had a two-run double in a three-run first inning off Jeremy Affeldt, who started when the Giants scratched reigning NL Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum because of a slight case of the flu. Lincecum is to make his next start Wednesday in place of Randy Johnson, who will be skipped because of biceps soreness, manager Bruce Bochy said.

HALFWAY -- They came out just like he used to. They dressed just like he did 15 years ago. They were enthusiastic about playing baseball, just the way he had been his entire life. The new generation of Halfway Little League players -- three divisions strong -- made its debut Saturday while standing on Nicholas James Adenhart Memorial Field, named for the league alumnus who started his climb to the majors on that very field.

We spend much of our lives really trying to get three things. To be loved. To be successful. To be respected. We want to stand out, make our families proud and start some sort of legacy. But before we die, there is only one thing we worry about. That is to be remembered. Everyone wants to feel like they made a difference. Many want to prove their stay on this earth made an impact. What that impact is depends. Some do it with the families they raised.

If the news that broke Saturday proved only one thing, it's that there are no sure things. Nick Adenhart's status as a top-5 pick in the upcoming Major League Baseball amateur draft looked like a sure thing. Based on everything that was written about him - from The Herald-Mail to The Washington Post to USA Today - it sounded like a sure thing, too. I was always taught if it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck ... The news that Adenhart will undergo "Tommy John" surgery to repair a torn elbow ligament in a few weeks put an end to - or at least a three-year hold on - that sure thing.
