June 24th was a day that former Threshers pitcher Matt Imhof will never forget. That day, his life was changed forever when a piece of workout equipment at the Brevard County Manatees stadium broke and he lost his eye.
I wrote a series of articles about the horrible accident HERE, HERE and HERE.
Today, nearly 7 months after the accident, Matt announced his retirement today. Read the ESPN article HERE.
It is good that he has decided that he, “wont be defined by my worst day.” It is a positive attitude like that that will make him successful in whatever he decides to do.
To quote the hit TV series, “This is Us”. “He took the sourest lemon life has to offer and turned into something resembling lemonade.”
I’ve always liked Matt, he was always kind to me and I wish him the best in everything he does. He is a quality kid and I have a feeling he will go far.
