Biographical Information[edit]

Matthew De Permentier played in the First Division and for the Belgian national team.

De Permentier debuted with the K. Deurne Spartans in 2010. In 2011, the 15-year-old allowed seven runs (six earned) in four innings. He had a 3.60 ERA in 2012, but walked 14 in 10 innings. In '13, he was 0-2 with a 15.26 ERA. The next year, he pitched for the Mortsel Stars (0 R in 1 1/3 IP) and Antwerp Royal Greys (1-2, 4.02). [1]

He made Belgium's team for the 2014 European Championship (he was their youngest player, a day younger than Axel Poesmans), appearing once, against Silver Medalist Italy. He relieved Steve De Saedeleer in the 8th with a 7-5 deficit. He struck out Alberto Mineo, walked Nick Morreale and got Erick Epifano to ground into a double play. The 8th was rougher; after Lorenzo Avagnina and Juan Carlos Infante singled, he was relieved by Kevin De Smedt, who escaped further damage. [2]

He was 5-5 with a save and a 5.28 ERA for the 2015 Brasschaat Braves, then improved to 3-1, 1.71 with a save in 2016. He did not appear from 2017-2019. [3]
