Matt was the visiting pitcher when I made my first trip to Victory Field in Indianapolis. He made his Major League debut about two months later against the Cubs. He only gave up two runs in the game walking away with a no decision. He is back with Louisville right now. With all the good young arms that the Reds have on their team you wonder if he will get lost.
As I said before Matt pitched the first game I saw at Victory Field. I was on the first base side, and the place was packed so I had little chance of moving. I snapped a few pictures of Matt because he was facing me as he pitched. I was rooting for him when I heard he had been called up, but we also know that I would be rooting for him because he was facing the Cubs.
