Jake Matheny to Follow Family Tradition in College Sports

Jake Matheny, the son of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, has committed to play baseball at Indiana University for 2016.  Jake will be the fourth sibling in his family to play at the college level.  Both of his parents were also college athletes.

Before his 12-year major league career as a player, Mike Matheny played his college baseball career at the University of Michigan, where his mother, Kristin, played field hockey.

Jake’s older brother, Tate, was recently selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 2015 MLB Draft, after playing at Missouri State University.  Jake’s sister, Katie, currently plays hockey at Ohio State, while his brother, Luke, has committed to pitch at Oklahoma State University.  A fifth, sibling, Blaise, is reportedly a promising baseball prospect.
