The Otters and SeaWolves share a city (and a parking lot) and last month they paired up for a crossover night to benefit a the Chase Numata Scholarship.
Chace Numata was a switch-hitting catcher with the Erie SeaWolves, the Double-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. He passed away during the 2019 baseball season at the age of 27. “Numi” played 10 professional seasons in the Phillies, Yankees and Tigers organizations and was a leader on and off the field. He was a talented baseball player and a world-class teammate. It didn’t matter if you were a professional athlete or a young child, Chace made you feel welcome. His smile was contagious and unrelenting, and his fun-loving personality could light up any environment.

The @ErieOtters will host a SeaWolves Night on November 16 at Erie Insurance Arena. Various fundraising efforts will be held throughout the night, benefiting the Chace Numata Scholarship. The Otters will wear SeaWolves-inspired jerseys.
