Black In The Day, Gary Matthews, Sr. was one of the best all-around players of his generation and reliable in the clutch. The Philadelphia Phillies stole the #MLBbro affectionately known as “Sarge” for his leadership abilities, from the Atlanta Braves for journeyman pitcher Bob Walk and immediately signed him to a five-year extension and it was on from there.

Matthews was a color commentator for the Phillies for years after he retired from MLB. He and son Junior| are one of seven father/son combinations in Cubs history.
