Nick was not just another player to make an appearance in our home town. Due to my family's involvement with the Host Family Program with the Owlz, I knew him. He ate dinner with my family, in our home. We have followed his career closely and I am very sad to see his life end. My thoughts and prayers go to his family, as well as the families of the other two individuals killed in the accident.
The Angels and Bee's games were postponed to a later date this evening due to this tragedy. You can read more about Nick's life and career in the many articles consolidated by Stephen Smith at FutureAngels.com.
