Funeral services for former Corona Santiago pitcher Nick Hurtado will be held Friday at 2 p.m. at Calvary Chapel of Chino Hills.

Hurtado died on Friday. He was 21.

Hurtado, who received a scholarship to Cal State Fullerton, touched many by his courage and determination to return to baseball after missing his senior high school season in 2010 following surgery because of bone cancer.
