Seems like there is a good chance that Matt can parlay the Akron gig into a first pitch at a Cleveland Indians game (Cleveland Guarandians game if its next season). I enjoyed his exchange with Joe Buck in terms of the 2016 World Series (Cubs beating the Indians in 7).
Matt seemed confident tat no video exists of him tossing out that first pitch. Presumably someone recorded on his phone. Did find a still pic of his toss:
Also found a pic of him on an area trivia show for high schools (back in 2009):
He seems very good at buzzing in when he knows the answer but its not on the tip of his tongue and using the time to have the answer come to him. I think for other contestants there is a tendency to wait until you know the answer and can say it.
I have enjoyed Matt’s run (to date – always interesting to know that we don’t know when it ends but it may well be over at this point but the shows have not aired–I believe that James’ run was over in terms of shows being taped before his first episode aired). Its fun watching contestants string together a number of wins. Having driven past his high school and being an alum of his undergrad helps too.
