Matt’s Dugout was not always Matt’s Dugout. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey, about an
hour away from Philadelphia. My father Don was a sports fanatic, specifically Philadelphia.
Of course being his only child, I was dragged into all of them. Throughout my entire childhood I played just about every sport imaginable, and Don was my coach for the majority of them.
Eventually, sports for my family became a lifestyle. Everyday after Don got out of work, he would
come home, throw a game on, and we would dream about starting our own sports business
together one day.
While I was in college getting a degree in business with this goal in mind, I
discovered sports card breaking. Don and I have always loved opening sports cards, and we
thought that we might be able to turn it into some kind of business.
Every weekend, Don helped me out with the business idea until the dream became reality. When my family moved down to
Florida, I decided to follow and build out my business full-time. When Matt’s Dugout began to
take off, Don decided to quit his job and work with me on our dream.
Matt’s Dugout is constantl growing, and we look forward to it each and every day.
