PRAIRIE GROVE -- Prairie Grove senior Chase Wade recently signed a National letter of intent to play men's college baseball for Coffeyville Community College, of Coffeyville, Kan.
Wade was accompanied by his parents, Dwane and Carol Wade, of Prairie Grove, during the ceremony.
According to Prairie Grove baseball coach Chris Mileham Wade is not a typical senior. He is 17, younger than most and Mileham expects him to get better as a pitcher.
"They're getting a good one," Mileham said of Coffeyville's interest in Wade.
Through the first 10 games of the season, in 27 at-bats Wade has 6 hits, 5 runs batted in, and has taken 6 bases-on-balls. He was once hit by a pitch and reached on an error 5 times for an on-base percentage of .382. On the mound he was 1-2 with 4 appearances, a .420 earned run average, and 11 strike-outs.
As a junior, Wade appeared in 20 games, batting .214 belting out 12 hits in 56 at-bats with 69 plate appearances, 5 doubles and 10 runs batted in. He was left on-base 40 times, the second most of anyone on the roster. Wade was hit by a pitch 5 times among the 6 bases he took on balls. He reached on an error 5 times and twice hit into a fielder's choice. His on-base percentage was .338 with a .303 slugg average. He had 2 stolen bases on 3 attempts.Sports on 04/04/2018
