BEFORE FAME

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.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Matt drew 109 walks in 2017, which ranked second in the National League, and had a team‐high 31 doubles. He joined Stan Musial (1949, 1953‐54), Jim Edmonds (2004) and Albert Pujols (2008‐10) as the lone Cardinals to have put together seasons with 100 or more walks, 20‐plus home runs and 30‐plus doubles. Matt hit three lead‐off homers in ‘17, upping his career total to 15 (second only to Lou Brock’s 21 in franchise history). His walk‐off grand slam in the opening game of the April 27, 2017 day‐night doubleheader vs. Toronto was the Cardinals’ first walk‐off extra-inning grand slam since Tommy Herr’s on April 18, 1987 (10th inning) vs. the New York Mets. Matt earned his third selection to the National League All-Star team in 2016, but did not play due to any injury. In 2013, he 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).

FUN FACT

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.
