Three recognition markers will be placed at each entrance to the green space approaching UPMC Park to honor Jerry Uht.
Jerry Uht has been a staple of baseball in Erie over many years, serving as captain of the Strong Vincent and American Legion championship teams before playing professionally for the Cleveland Indians organization.
Jerry Uht established an endowment fund to support Erie’s minor league ballpark and baseball in Erie.
“Jerry’s generosity, passion and commitment to baseball in our City exemplifies good citizenship,” said Casey Wells, Executive Director of Erie Events. “His name on these granite markers serves to remind all citizens of his significant contributions.”
The rose-colored granite recognition markers are 3 feet high and 1.5 feet wide.
