Biographical Information[edit]

Infielder Jason Matthews was the youngest position player on the New Zealand national team in the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers (held in February 2016 in Sydney), at age 18. He was one of only two position players they did not use (third-string catcher Dewald De Klerk was the other). While he was their youngest position player, they had four younger hurlers: Jimmy Boyce, Kyle Glogoski, Ben Thompson and Jacob Curry. Matthews had previously played in the Oceania Junior Championship.
