Matt is the wily veteran for the Reds. As the oldest player and longest tenured Red, he is a leader on the field and throughout the off-season. Matt has taken the initiative during recent seasons to get the Reds more press scheduling interviews with KROX and the Crookston Times.
As one of the longest tenured player since the Reds stats began being kept in 2005, he ranks among the Top 10 in nearly every career and single season hitting and pitching category.
He also is the father of the future Reds batboy, as soon as he is old enough of course.
