The Gadsden High School baseball team will honor Adalberto “Beto” Romero, the sophomore player who was killed Wednesday in a hit-and-run accident.

The team will hold a memorial ceremony at 4 p.m. on the baseball field prior to the teams game against Alamogordo High School.

“Coach Richard Yanez and the administration will honor the memory of Romero with comments from the team members,” an email from Gadsden Independent School District said. “Parents of Romero will be in attendance and the school plans to have Romero’s father throw out the first pitch of the game after the memorial is concluded.”

Romero was killed when 21-year-old Oscar Anchondo allegedly ran him over as he was getting into his car to go to school at Aero Lane and Pico, according to a Sheriff’s Office news release.

According to Doña Ana County Detention records, Anchondo was booked into jail 5:40 p.m. Wednesday evening. He has been charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene, no driver’s license, no insurance, and tampering with evidence he is being held without bond.
