WILLIAMSPORT, Md. (AP) - Thousands have gathered at the funeral of Los Angles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart, returning to his former high school and remembering his love for baseball.
Many of Adenhart's friends and fans arrived in baseball gear Friday, at the request of the family. Adenhart starred at Williamsport High School before becoming a major leaguer.
The 22-year-old pitcher was killed in a car accident in California on April 9. He was buried Thursday in a private ceremony.
The funeral service was in the school gym. Outside, a large circle containing Adenhart's name and his No. 34 with the Angels was displayed. Inside the gym, a video tribute depicted him at various stages in his life.
