Breen selected for Adenhart Courage Award
In 2009, tragedy struck Major League Baseball fans everywhere as Los Angeles Angels Pitcher Nick Adenhart was killed in a car accident just hours after throwing six scoreless innings. This tragedy hit close to home for many alumni, coaches, and players of the Mid-Atlantic Red Sox who watched or played against the Western Maryland native.
In 2010, the Adenhart family presented the first ever Nick Adenhart Courage Award at the Southern Maryland Baseball Camp. The recipient was Mid-Atlantic Red Sox alum Joe Giacchino. The 2011 Nick Adenhart Courage Award was recently presented to Red Sox alum Danny Breen. Danny will continue his collegiate career next year at Salisbury University. The Mid-Atlantic Red Sox are honored to have alumni be selected in consecutive years. The Mid-Atlantic Red Sox are proud of the program's rich history of having the type of players who display the character, perseverance, and courage recognized by the Adenhart family.
