ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Torii Hunter and John Lackey stood on the pitcher's mound at Angel Stadium, each holding Nick Adenhart's jersey, their caps off and heads bowed. The rest of the Los Angeles Angels took their places along the third-base line, while the Boston Red Sox lined up on the first-base side. The pregame music went quiet and a hush fell over the red-clad crowd. The Angels paid tribute Friday night with a moment of silence for Adenhart, a 2004 Williamsport High School graduate, and two of his friends who were killed about 36 hours earlier in a car crash after being broadsided by a suspected drunk driver.

As usual, Nick Adenhart outdid many of us. He needed only 22 years to live his dream. Many of us never will. That, alone, is not enough to overcome the grief and sadness felt by all of us who were friends, teammates, classmates or simply fans of his. But it's a start -- and a reason to rejoice. Adenhart's life ended much too soon. But not before, in the words of agent Scott Boras, "he felt like a major leaguer," after holding the Oakland Athletics scoreless for six innings.

I don't believe in coincidences. I don't know why. It might be because of my age, past experiences or that I'm not as wired into religion as I should be. I do believe everything happens for a reason. There are things we can't control and they just happen. One such thing happened to me Friday at about 12:15 a.m. I was driving home from the office, withdrawn and drained from a long day. I was questioning a lot of things after reporting on Nick Adenhart's cruel and untimely death.

Any opportunity to watch Nick Adenhart pitch was always worth the price of admission. Every one of the Williamsport native's performances was a show in itself. His game and his persona provided more twists and nuances than an episode of "Lost. " And in most cases, that was the title of Adenhart's opposition when he was done with them. They lost. He won. On Thursday, everyone lost Adenhart. He died after a three-car crash in Fullerton, Calif., just hours after the best performance of his fledgling professional baseball career.

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.
