Scott Mathieson has been to the show. He’s made it to the pinnacle of his sport.

But there’s something about high school baseball that appeals to this former Philadelphia Phillie.

“It’s pure, you know, you’re playing for the love of the game,” he said.

Mathieson helped spread the love at Academy at the Lakes as their pitching coach. The Wildcats baseball team made history this year, advancing to the regional quarterfinals  for the first time. Mathieson helped propel them to new levels.

“Being able to to just teach us anything and everything, being able to answer any questions we have, just definitely a great asset to our team,” senior pitcher Josiah Bayona said.

Mathieson brings some street cred to his position with the Wildcats. And some motivation.
