Wilhite to Throw First Pitch

Did I say I was back for good? Ok, maybe I lied. I’ve been a little busy, but ironically enough a lot of my time has been taken up with sports related activities.  Anyway…

Jon Wilhite, was the only survivor in the accident that killed rising star Nick Adenhart.  Wilhite will be throwing the first pitch at the A’s/Angel’s game Saturday, July 18th as a guest of Kurt Suzuki of the Oakland A’s. They went to the same college and have remained friends.

Wilhite, was seriously injured and is still going through therapy. He had an operation that consisted of reattaching his skull and spinal column.  He is definitely lucky to be alive.

If anyone is interested and able to make a monetary donation they can be made to the Wilhite Recovery Fund, account 3980643658, at any Wells Fargo branch, or to a tax deductible account set up through Manhattan Beach Little League by mailing a check to: Manhattan Beach Little League, P.O. Box 3512, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, with “Wilhite Recovery Fund” on the memo line.

Just thought I would put that out there for those of you unaware of this.  Obviously finances are tight these days but any little bit helps.  It’s a good Karma boost, and I’m always for a little of that.
