Jered Weaver names son “Aden” after late teammate Nick Adenhart

Los Angeles Angels ace Jered Weaver and his wife welcomed their first child into the world on Friday, Aden David Weaver.  The name Aden was chosen with special meaning, in honor of Weaver’s late teammate, Nick Adenhart, who was killed by a drunk driver in April 2009, when he and Jered were both part of the Angels staff.  The Los Angeles Angels confirmed the name association via a Tweet:

Jered always honors his late teammate by tracing his initials in the dirt behind the mound before every start.  There can’t possibly be a way to honor a lost loved one than to name your first born son, further showing his love of the departed.
