The Monarchs recently added another powerful pitcher to the lineup - Benton High School's Dillon Mattice committed to play for the Monarchs in 2014.
Mattice excelled as a pitcher with a 2.73 ERA and struck out 39 batters through 59 innings. He was a force at the plate, batting .294 on the season.
Mattice joins fellow St. Joseph Monarch Will Carter, who has had great career for the Monarchs.
The Monarchs coaching staff is always interested in meeting with players and their families throughout the year. If you are looking to man the field for the Monarchs, visit our Recruiting page and make an appointment.
Former Monarch and MCC-Maple Woods alum Logan Morrison was back in KC recently to play baseball - AGAINST the hometown Royals. Morrison, who now plays first base for the Miami Marlins, knocked in a run in the sixth inning, but the Marlins lost the game 6-2.
Even before being drafted by the Miami Marlins, Logan Morrison had a special talent – a power hitter and a great glove made him stand out amongst his fellow players at Maple Woods. Choosing to attend college instead of moving straight into the MLB system when he was drafted by Miami in 2006, Morrison evolved as a natural leader both on and off the field.
While with the Monarchs, Morrison excelled at the plate and in the field, leading the team in most batting categories and committing just 3 errors the entire year. After moving on to the South Atlantic League, Morrison continued to lead his team at bat, as well as off the field. He was called up by the Marlins in 2010, and is currently playing first base.
