Tate Matheny, who is starting his third season in the Boston Red Sox organization, had a big moment last week when he was called up from his minor league spring training camp in Florida to suit up with the Red Sox against the St. Louis Cardinals. What made that special was the fact his father, Mike, is the manager of the Cardinals. It was Tate’s first chance to play with the big-league club.
Tate was the 4th-round pick of the Red Sox in the 2015 MLB Draft. Last year with Class A Greenville, he posted a .277 average to go along with 5 HR and 52 RBI.
