Kid Talk with Luke Matheny

Wonder what it would be like to travel to ball parks around the country, play catch with All-Star players, and hang out in the dugout and clubhouse with the guys?  Luke Matheny knows all about it. Luke_and_mike_matheny  His dad, Mike Matheny,Mike_matheny  is a 3-time Gold Glove winner, and one of the games finest defensive catchers.  The 12-year veteran plays for the San Francisco Giants.  Luke was in Houston with his dad May 15-17.  I had a chance to catch up with him and talk about his experiences.

How old are you, and what grade are you in?

I am nine and in the third grade.

Do you want to be a baseball player when you grow up?

Yes, I think that I do.

Do you play baseball now?

Not this year, but I will next year.

Who is your favorite baseball player besides your dad?

I don’t know.  There are lots of favorites!

Do you travel a lot with the team?

No, but I usually go to San Francisco and Arizona. 

When you do travel, like now, do you get to get out of school a lot?

Yeah – it’s pretty fun!

What are your favorite places to go when you do get to travel for fun?

I like Texas, Hawaii, St. Louis, Florida, and different places.

What’s it like having a dad as a professional baseball player?

It’s great because you get to travel a lot, meet a lot of people and see a lot of stadiums. 

Do you have any hobbies?

Not really, I like do everything!

Good stuff. I think I like this interview more than the one you did with Barry Bonds.

🙂

But that one was pretty cool, too.
