In the hours after the Nick Adenhart tragedy, some media outlets had reported that another player in the Angels’ organization had been involved in the crash.
The two are not related. Unfortunately, however, Matthew Wilhite, a former teammate of Adenhart’s, is familar with tragedy. His younger brother, Michael, died at the age of 20 less than four years ago.
There is nothing as sad as the loss of young life and, terribly, Matthew Wilhite understands that perhaps better than anyone.
Our thoughts go out to Matt, who is mourning the death of his friend Nick Adenhart, a death that no doubt brings with it painful memories of his brother’s passing.
We can’t help but root for Matt to have a breakout season.
