    Dear Baseball Friends,

    We are sincerely thankful for the outreach from the baseball community since Matt’s injury on Monday evening. The prayers, emails, visits and contacts have been so helpful and supportive to Matt and our family. Matt is doing fine. He has stitches in his ear and is recovering nicely. We want to especially thank the Southwest Guilford baseball coaches (Reid Holmes, Joyce, Frazier and Gann), the Southwest Guilford parents, and Coach Christman and Mr. Parker. We also want to thank the parents and coaches from the Piedmont 4-A conference and other conferences for the extensive outreach after the incident. Your support and encouragement was greatly appreciated. Best of luck to all of the teams during the conference tournament and playoffs.

    Best regards,

    Keith and Angie Orth
