Catcher University Founder

My name is Matt Williams and I am the Founder of Catcher University. I started catching when I was 8 years old because I was the only kid who showed up to my little league game wearing a cup.

Since then, catching has allowed me to…

  • travel the country playing in tournaments with fun and competitive summer teams
  • become the first freshman to ever make varsity at my high school
  • win every award possible in the state of Michigan except for one
  • earn a scholarship to play baseball at Duke University

  • get drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 18th round after my senior year
