07/10/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Trenton, NJ Matthew is a 2B/OF who will graduate in 2024. Defensively at 2B, he hustles with active feet as he tries to work around the GB. He fields the ball smoothly with his backhand and comes up with a clean exchange to throw. In the OF, he takes solid angles as he tracks down hard-hit fly balls. He fields GB's with soft hands and plays through the ball towards his target. With the stick, Matthew shows an athletic setup with smooth rhythm to load.
