Before the Shamokin at Selinsgrove Preview, Something for Seth and Alex

This week the Shamokin Indians travel across the river and of course road construction to take on the Selinsgrove Seals.  This past off season, outstanding Seal fullback Seth Lauver and his prom date Alex Mullen were injured in a car accident on their way home from the Selinsgrove High prom.

A fund has been established for the Seth and Alex and so far has raised $40,000 to date.  This fund is being split between the two families.  Seth has returned home and is in wheelchair paralyzed from the waist.  Alex Mullen as of this writing is still in a rehabilitation facility in Philadelphia.

For those of you involved in the Lower Anthracite Teener League in the late 1970's, Seth's father Chuck was an outstanding pitcher on Sunbury Braves teener team.

Click the link to the Seth and Alex Fund to see how you can make a contribution by attending Friday's game. There is a raffle to be drawn on October 1st. Wristbands are available and contributions can be made by mail.

Here is Lauver in his last game:
