Matt Lawton

Matthew Lawton III
Batted: Left
Threw: Right
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 186 lbs.
Born: November 3, 1971 in Gulfport, MS
Drafted: 13th round 1991 by the Minnesota Twins
Acquired: traded from the Twins for
Rick Reed, July 2001
Departed: traded to the Cleveland Indians with
Alex Escobar, Jerrod Riggan, and two players to be named later (Earl Snyder and Billy Traber) for Roberto Alomar, Mike Bacsik, and Danny Peoples, December 2001

 

Matt had a history with the Mets before he ever stepped on the field at Shea; his older brother Marcus was a top prospect in the '80s, and Matt served as a batboy in the Mets minor-league system while his brother was a player. His stopover in New York was a brief one, though, as he was traded to Cleveland in the Roberto Alomar deal following the 2001 season. Pictured here is his card from the 2001 MLB Showdown Unlimited set. Over a dozen more cards appear below.
