Memorial bench honors late Penn-Trafford pitcher

Maclean Maund will forever be memorialized on the Penn-Trafford campus.

The late Warriors baseball star, who was killed in an auto accident in January not far from the high school, has his own memorial bench overlooking the baseball field near the school’s entrance.

The marble bench, perched on top of the hillside down the third-base end of the newly renovated field, reads “In Loving Memory, Maclean “Mac” Maund, 2001-2020” on one side, and “8, Play With Purpose” on the other.

Maund, an intense, left-handed pitcher, wore No. 8 for the Warriors.

The school’s business management program organization raised money to pay for the monument. An online fundraiser where T-shirts and hoodies were sold covered the cost in the first few weeks of sales.

The leftover funds will go to the Center for Organ Recovery and Education.

Maund, 18, would have been a freshman pitcher at Seton Hill.

He also played for the Bushy Run Legion team.

Bushy Run retired his No. 7 last month.
