Matthew With Grandma & Grandpa
Matthew played catcher and right field during the tournament. He was involved in one of the best plays of the weekend. While Matthew played catcher, the opposing team with runners on first and third sent the runner at first toward second base on a steal attempt. They figured that Matthew probably wouldn't try to throw the runner out at second because the runner at third base would score on the play. Instead of allowing the runner to take second base, Matthew threw a perfect strike to the charging shortstop, who then threw the ball back to Matthew as the runner on third tried to score. The runner from third tried to slide across home plate, but Matthew blocked the plate and tagged the runner out. It was a beautful play and the Richmond team was applauded by the entire crowd.
