From MILB.com:

The Numata, Erie SeaWolves, Detroit Tigers and baseball families have suffered a tragic loss.

Minor League catcher Chace Numata has died after being hospitalized for injuries suffered in a skateboarding accident in Erie, his family confirmed Monday.

“It is with deep sorrow that the Numata Ohana announces that Chace Kekoa Kenji Numata, our beloved son, brother, and a friend to all, has passed away on Sept. 2, 2019,” the Numata family said in a statement released by Double-A Erie. “Chace was a 27-year-old, switch-hitting catcher from Pearl City, Hawaii that was blessed with the opportunity to professionally play the sport he loved for the Phillies, Yankees, and Tigers organizations for over 10 seasons.

News broke last Friday that Numata had been found by police officers at around 2:15 a.m. that morning bleeding from the head after suffering a skateboarding accident in downtown Erie. He was hospitalized at UPMC Hamot before dying three days later.

Numata was in the Yankees system in 2018, playing for four teams, mostly for Trenton AA (38 of his 54 games). His total record for the four teams was .200 with 1 HR and 16 RBI.
