Tate Matheny, the son of St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, was recently signed by the Boston Red Sox organization after being selected by them in the fourth round of the 2015 MLB Draft. He passed up signing a pro contract in 2012, when he was drafted out of high school, and attended Missouri State University for three years.
Matheny is now playing for Lowell of the Class A New York-Penn League. While he has the name and pedigree of a famous major league father, the younger Matheny realizes that in order to have a successful pro career, he must make it on his own merits.
