Adenhart's mother helps dedicate field
HALFWAY, Md. -- The mother of the late Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart has fulfilled her top priority since her son was killed in an traffic accident in April.
On Sunday, Janet Gigeous joined about 150 people in putting Adenhart's name on the Little League field in Halfway, Md., where he honed his skills.
The red, white and blue sign designates the diamond as Nicholas James Adenhart Memorial Field.
The sign includes a quote from Pete Rose: "You owe it to yourself to be the best you can possibly be ... in baseball and in life."
The man charged in the drunken-driving crash that killed Adenhart and two others in Fullerton, Calif., is scheduled for trial in November.
