The Millville Madness annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament is our first-ever event to begin raising funds for my hometown of Millville, NJ. I’m hoping everyone in the community can come out and support our mission here.”

Petty pitched in 68 innings in 2023 with a 1.72 ERA, notching 66 strikeouts and a 1.15 WHIP with High-A Dayton. and Double-A Chattanooga.


What is the Chase Petty Foundation?

The foundation’s goal is to empower and inspire these young minds, providing them with the resources, support, and opportunities they need to realize their full potential.
