GADSDEN BASEBALL MOURNS THE LOSS OF ONE OF THEIR PLAYERS
Gadsden High School is mourning the loss of one of their baseball players. Adalberto “Beto” Romero was killed Wednesday in a hit-and-run accident. Romero was a sophomore player on the team. According to a Sheriff’s Office news release, Romero was killed when a driver allegedly ran him over as he was getting into his car to go to school.
On Friday, the baseball team held a memorial ceremony on the field before their game against Alamogordo High School. Friends and family members were in attendance. Romero’s father threw out the first pitch the game.
“It’s sad to be out here and not see your kid on the field,” said his father Beto. “It’s something that’s painful, it’s sadness you can’t describe, but I’m grateful for all the support.”
