Man Gets 51 Years for Crash that Killed Angels Pitcher Nicholas Adenhart


A man convicted of murder in a crash that killed Major League Baseball pitcher Nicholas Adenhart and two other people has been sentenced to a prison term of 51 years to life.

Authorities said Andrew Thomas Gallo’s blood-alcohol level was three times the legal limit when he sped through a red light and crashed into the car, in April 2009.

Adenhart, 22, of the Los Angeles Angels, who was beginning his first full season in the majors, was killed.

The crash also killed 20-year-old California State University student Courtney Stewart and law student Henry Pearson, 25.
