Player of the Week: Dillon Mattice

05/22/2015 1:58 PM -

Dillon Mattice, outfielder, has been engulfed in the world of baseball his entire life. His love for the game started at a young age, and was influenced heavily by his older brothers, who all played the game. Dillon grew up loving St. Joseph
baseball. He regularly came 
out to Phil Welch to watch the
 Saints, Blacksnakes, and now
 the Mustangs play ball.

As Dillon grew up, he
 paired his passion for the game 
with his talent and sprouted
 into a marvelous player.
 During his career at Benton 
High School, Dillon collected 
many accolades including
 being an All-City player twice, All-District, All-Conference twice, and All-State his Senior year.

Dillon continued his career after high school, playing for the Maple Woods Community College Monarchs. In the classroom at Maple Woods, he is pursuing a degree in physical therapy. Outside of the classroom Dillon spends his time relaxing with friends, or working out attempting to better himself and hone his baseball skills.

The newest addition to Dillon Mattice’s résumé will be his Mustangs career. Many things helped bring him to the team for his first summer. One of which is that it’s a team he knows and loves. Dillon is also excited about the opportunities that he sees the organization presenting to him. “I’m excited to be around the rest of the team, and to get experience from the other players and coaches,” he said when asked about what he was most excited about for this summer. He is also very eager to learn behind the coaching staff, specifically Manager Matt Johnson; a coach that he has worked with in the past.

Dillon also stated that he is up for the challenge of facing the tough competition that playing in the M.I.N.K. League will bring. Playing against the talent of the league, which includes many talented and decorated players all the way up to Division I schools, shows a promising chance to not only show his talent, but to improve upon it.

Overall, Dillon is very enthusiastic about the summer ahead. He is ready to have fun, to learn, and most importantly... to win!
