Wildcats' Matthews signs with Enterprise State

Congratulations to MHS senior baseball player Chris Matthews, who signed with Enterprise State Community College, to further his academic and athletic career in a ceremony on Wednesday, November 17, 2021.

“It means a lot, I worked really hard me and this great Meridian High team and I’ve had a lot of great memories and I’m just excited to move on,” said Matthews.

The senior pitcher/outfielder appeared 11 games from the mound and posted a record of 3 wins and 6 losses. He struck out 58 batters while walking only 19, and had an opponent’s batting average of .258. Matthews batted .278 at the plate.

“Chris has been a consistent piece to changing the culture of Meridian Baseball,” said Eddie Easley, MHS Head Baseball Coach. “He’s exactly the type of player you want in your program. He is a hard worker, and Enterprise State is lucky to get a player with his work ethic.”

Before he begins playing in college, Matthews said he and his Wildcat teammates have unfinished business this year.

“We’re gonna try and go all the way — we’ve got a great team,” said Matthews. Everybody works with each other and we’re trying to go far.”

The ceremony took place in the Meridian High School multipurpose building.
