Matt is another big piece of our offensive and defensive puzzle. He will most likely bat in the 4-hole and will be our third baseman. You can probably expect another big offensive year out of him. He also had success over the summer and he was in the chase for the batting title in the New England Collegiate Summer Baseball League where he finished 2nd and led the Steeplecats to their deepest playoff run in history.
