Current Washington and Jefferson University (Pa.) baseball player and 2015 Jonathan Alder High School graduate Tanner Gaerke was recently rewarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Gaerke, the son of Troy and Leann Gaerke of Plain City, received one of five $1,000 scholarships given out each year by the National Amateur Baseball Federation to players playing in sanctioned leagues by the NABF.

Tanner played last summer for the Columbus Ohio Braves, a member of the Ohio Independent Wooden Bat Baseball League, where he pitched and sported a 4-2 record. He is currently in his sophomore year at Washington and Jefferson University.
