Matt Holliday talks return to Stillwater

Q: Can you walk us through how you ended up returning to baseball as a coach?

A: “I think the one thing is that I knew when I was done playing that I needed to I wanted to stay involved in baseball and didn’t quite know what capacity. But having four kids and being away a lot as a player and playing, this was a good fit. When Josh (Holliday) asked me if this is something I wanted do, it was a really good fit for us as a family because I get to be here and it’s not quite as consuming as professional baseball.

“So, it just seemed like a good fit, kind of a good next step for me in my life and having the opportunity to to be here and be around Josh and the staff. And helping young players was appealing to me.” The Oklahoman

Trez: Everyone out there knows who Daton Fix is and why the USA World Team Member isn’t wrestling this season. Please tell us a little a bit about his replacement, Reece Witcraft, and the job he has done filling in at 133lbs. And looking ahead, where does Witcraft fit in next season when Fix returns? Because, he looks like a good one to me.

BC: OSU head coach John Smith described Witcraft perfectly after the Bedlam dual when he said, “don’t get up and go get a Coke because you may miss something with that kid.” Witcraft has Greco experience and likes his throws, but sometimes his positioning can be off and he’ll end up on his back. He’s improved his low singles attacks and has been mixing them in with throws.

Witcraft’s status is up in the air pending Kaid Brock’s medical redshirt status. If Brock returns, Witcraft will redshirt and OSU’s first three weights will be Fix, Brock, Kaden Gfeller (out for rest of 2020 season with knee injury) OR Dusty Hone. Black Heart Gold Pants
