FORT WAYNE (www.incnow.tv) - Chris Stavreti, who won 526 games in 25 years as Northrop High School baseball coach, died Friday after a lengthy illness at the age of 73.
Stavreti, who also coached at East Noble prior to his time at Northrop, won nine Summit Athletic Conference titles, twelve sectionals, seven regionals, three semistates, and the state title in 1983.
Former major league catcher and current Seattle Mariners manager Eric Wedge played for Stavreti at Northrop in the 1980s.
Stavreti was a member of the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Hall of Fame, and the field at Northrop was renamed last year in his honor.
