A three-time second-team All-Mountain-West-Conference selectee, Matt broke Texas Christian University’s school record for games played and at-bats and ranks second in hits, doubles and walks.
Matt hit 36 doubles in 2016 and has 168 over the past four seasons, the most of any major-league player. He earned his third selection to the National League All-Star team in 2016, but did not play due to any injury. In 2013, Matt set the Cardinals franchise record for most doubles by a left-handed hitter with 55, breaking the record of Hall of Famer Stan Musial (53 in 1953).
In 2013, Matt earned his first Silver Slugger Award at second base, presented each season to the best offensive player at each position as determined by Major-League managers. He became the first recipient of the award at second base in Cardinals history.
