The Erie SeaWolves have announced that the team has established the Chace Numata Scholarship in honor of the SeaWolves catcher who tragically passed away in September.
The SeaWolves Community Fund will award a minimum of four $1,000 scholarships annually to Erie-area senior student-athletes participating in varsity baseball or softball. Honorees will be selected based on their accomplishments, contributions to a team, and their positive impact on the lives of others.
Fundraising efforts for the scholarship will begin immediately. Fans can purchase Chace Numata yellow jersey tees featuring his number (#10) and the hashtag #LiveLikeNumi. Numata T-shirts are available at the UPMC Park Team Store and online at SeaWolves.com. All proceeds from T-shirt sales will benefit the scholarship.
