As crushing a blow as the death of Nick Adenhart was to the Angels, who lost a teammate, a friend and a promising young pitcher, the automobile accident that killed the 22-year-old right-hander a year ago Friday was doubly devastating for third baseman Brandon Wood.

Also killed in the crash, which occurred only hours after Adenhart threw six shutout innings against the Oakland Athletics in Angel Stadium, were Henry Pearson, a 25-year-old aspiring sports agent, and Courtney Stewart, a 20-year-old Cal State Fullerton student.
