ICYMI: Will Matthiessen was named the High-A East player of the week. I look at his struggles after an early season promotion to Greensboro, all the way to his success this past month. #LetsGoBucs #MiLB https://t.co/ORR3PbEkYo https://t.co/3S0qeWlrdF
New Post: Will Matthiessen struggled out the gate after an early season promotion to Greensboro. Now in August he’s found his rhythm and is mashing the way you’d expect someone his size would be https://t.co/vGBJhHMyyp #LetsGoBucs @IBWAA #MiLB https://t.co/QARX7Wh4YV
ICYMI: My game story from last night's Greensboro game. It was Henry Davis' debut at High-A, but Will Matthiessen that stole the show. https://t.co/wYX3Y9krOq #LetsGoBucs #MiLB @IBWAA https://t.co/KiXBdQDg8V
Not sure what happened in that Greensboro game but it was 3-3 going into extra innings.
The final was 15-14 and Will Matthiessen got the win AND hit a walk off home run. That just sounds insane. #LetsGoBucs
