Gary Matthews Jr. is a former American baseball player who has a net worth of $25 million. Born on August 25, 1974 in San Francisco, California, Matthews was an outfielder and switch hitter who made his Major League Baseball debut with the San Diego Padres on June 4, 1999. With an accumulated batting average of .257, 108 home run, and 484 runs batted in, Matthews was a smaller figure in among his colleagues. Following the San Diego Padres, Matthews played for the Chicago Cubs from 2000 to 2001, the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2001, the New York Mets in 2002, the Baltimore Orioles from 2002 to 2003, returned to the San Diego Padres in 2003, moved on to the Texas Rangers from 2004 to 2006, the Anaheim Angels from 2007 to 2009, and back to the New York Mets in 2010. He was named an MLB All-star in 2006 and was the Wampum Willy Award Winner in 2007. Despite his minimal activity in the league, there was a rather large investigation of Matthews in 2007, which focused on rumored usage of human growth hormones. Matthews was let off with a warning and continued on to hit eight home runs in the 2008 season.
Gary Nathaniel Matthews, Jr. (born August 25, 1974) is a former outfielder who played Major League Baseball. Matthews is the son of Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Gary Matthews.
Matthews, Jr. was a switch hitter.


Matthews began his career with the San Diego Padres in 1999 and has also played for the Brisbane Bandits of the Australian Baseball League,Chicago Cubs, Pittsburgh Pirates, New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He was traded by the Mets to the Orioles for John Bale on April 3, 2002. Up until 2006, Matthews was not a big figure in baseball, getting only 2,167 at bats over his first seven years (1999-2005). During that time, he hit 59 home runs, stole 54 bases, batted .249 and had a .397 slugging percentage.
Matthews got off to a fine start in the 2006 season, and as a result he was chosen to play in the 2006 All-Star Game. He and his father were the 14th father-son combination to appear in an All-Star Game, as his father took part in the 1979 game.
Matthews is known for his jumping skills and flair for the dramatic in the field, often taking away what would be home runs in the process. His home run-stealing catch against Mike Lamb on July 1, 2006 was so outstanding, Lamb himself applauded after the play was over. Team radio announcer Eric Nadel said it was the best catch he's ever seen a Rangers outfielder make in his 26 years with the ballclub. It was later called the #1 defensive play ever performed by The Best Damn Sports Show Period.
On September 13 of the same year, Matthews hit for a natural cycle in a game against the Detroit Tigers, with a single for his first hit, a double for his second, a triple for his third, and a home run for his fourth.
After his fine performance in 2006, with 19 HRs, 79 RBIs, and 194 hits (including 44 doubles), and respected defensive work in the outfield, he was signed by the Angels to a 5-year contract worth $50 million. Many baseball writers such a
