The Merrimack Valley Umpires Association honor the memory of David M. Augusta, III, who died in August in a tragic car accident, by presenting the David M Augusta, III, Teen Associate Member (TAM) Award. David was entering his senior year at Timberlane Regional High School. He loved his family and was an avid outdoorsman. David, as a TAM, wore the uniform with pride. He was committed to improving his skills and earned the respect of veteran umpires, coaches, players and parents both on and off the field by demonstrating a confident command presence with a calm and polite approach. The MVUA presented this award at their annual meeting on March 3 to Chase Goodwin, of Amesbury, MA, who exemplifies these qualities for which the MVUA stands, in the spirit of David M. Augusta, III. Chase Goodwin is the son of long time MVUA member Charles Goodwin.
