I have had the pleasure of instructing Matheson Duff for the past six years as his private baseball instructor.  Throughout our time together it has been an absolute pleasure getting to watch his development from a talented young athlete to a world class ball player.   This growth can only be attributed to his relentless desire to be better.  There is no hiding a 6’3” 180lbs young man on a diamond especially when they have the swing and arm of Matt’s caliber.  At the plate Matt has gap to gap power and an uncanny ability to find the pitch he is looking for.  This combination is what makes Matt an extreme offensive threat.  On the mound Matt’s presence is unquestionable.  In addition to his velocity Matt has the ability to mix speeds with a compliment of pitches.  He will attack the zone with each and every pitch.  Finding a ball player who posses both sides of the game at this level will ensure nothing but future success.  Working with hundreds of athletes, training a player who finds joy in hard work and a pleasure in getting better makes him a coach’s dream.   This work ethic translates into the classroom as well which completes a well rounded young man.  Getting to know him on a personal level, I am excited to witness his future success in baseball and otherwise.

Matheson Duff has partnered with Emmanuel, the Kitchener-Waterloo Ambassador for Home Runs that Help

Matheson Duff…. Raising funds for KidsAbility and partnering with Emmanuel, the Kitchener-Waterloo Ambassador.

Matheson’s KidsAbility donation page http://tinyurl.com/n5ef3wu

KidsAbility provides rehabilitation services for over 5,000 children from Waterloo Region and Guelph-Wellington from birth to 18 years of age.   KidsAbility is a dynamic, multi-faceted organization that serves children with a wide range of special needs.  This includes children with developmental disabilities and delays related to premature birth, medical syndromes such as Down syndrome, coordination disorders, and autism; physical disabilities such as muscular dystrophy, spina bifida and cerebral palsy; and communication difficulties in language, articulation, fluency and voice.

 

Each year, KidsAbility Foundation selects honourary Kids Can’t Wait Ambassadors to represent the thousands of children that we serve in Waterloo Region and Guelph-Wellington. Ambassadors and their families share their stories of hope and their personal journeys inspiring our community to make a difference.

 

This year the Kitchener-Waterloo Ambassador is Emmanuel, a 12 year old boy who is excited about helping others use the services he was privileged to use.  Matheson met Emmanuel this week and was inspired to see how KidsAbility helped Emmanuel.  Matheson hopes to raise funds to ensure that more children can use the KidsAbility rehabilitation services in the future.
