Special message to the Baseball Community from the family of Matt Orth(SWG)

You just about had to be there on Monday night, for the Southwest Guilford Cowboy-East Forsyth Eagle baseball game, to have a full feeling for the impact the baseball made when Cowboy pitcher Matt Orth took the line drive shot to the head, but all is now good and Matt is doing much better after the Monday night blow and below we have a very special update from his mom and dad as they reach out to the local baseball community, that has been so supportive since this accident occurred…..

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
