Erie SeaWolves players have started a GoFundMe campaign to help Chace Numata and his family after the catcher was injured while riding his electric skateboard last week, reported.

Numata, 27, remains hospitalized in Erie, Pennsylvania with what's being reported as a severe head injury. The GoFundMe fundraiser, which was started by pitcher Logan Shore, generated $8,300 by 9 p.m. Sunday. The goal is to raise $15,000.

Former Tiger Kirk Gibson, whose son Cam plays on Detroit's Double-A affiliate, was reportedly among the donors.
