Monthly Featured Nokona Player Profile

Matt Muir

Three years ago at Nokona Baseball's Fall tryouts we came across a very talented and naturally gifted young athlete in Matt Muir. Blessed with speed and raw talent, he immediately impressed us with his upside potential. Matt’s hard work, dedication and ability to swiftly transfer the disciplines he has learned have made Matt a potent force on the diamond. His versatility, calm demeanor, classic baseball swing and great baseball instincts have placed Matt as one of the top players in Massachusetts in his High School class of 2018.

Matt is a native of Easton, Mass. and attends Oliver Ames High School (North Easton, MA) where he is a two-sport athlete in basketball and baseball. Matt played varsity baseball as a freshman last year at 2nd base for the 2015 Hockomock League champion Tigers. During the summer Matt can be found playing CF and SS for our Nokona Baseball prospect team.

As well as being a quiet leader on the field, Matt is an extremely bright student, ranking in the top 15% of his high school class, and is also a member of the Executive Board of his class. He has participated in competitions with DECA (the Distributive Education Club of America), a non-profit organization dedicated to preparing emerging leaders and future entrepreneurs. Matt recently spent a week with the Close Up program in Washington, DC to get an inside look at the Federal Government in action by interacting with legislators, journalists and other students from around the country. This winter Matt worked as an instructor for the Easton Recreation Department coordinating basketball clinics for children ages 5-11.

As an organization, Nokona Baseball is proud to have watched—and continue to watch—Matt’s growth in maturity as an athlete and as a young man. He is extremely affable, exceptionally coachable and an absolute pleasure to have as a player and teammate. We look forward to Matt’s continued success both on and off the diamond and the prospects of a very bright baseball future.

College/Pro Star Anderson Joins Nokona as Instructor and Coach

Nokona Baseball is very pleased to announce the hiring of Instructor and Coach Brandon Anderson. Coach Anderson is a 2003 graduate of Wayland High School (Wayland, MA), where he excelled in both football and baseball. Following his senior season, he was drafted in the 41st round by the Colorado Rockies.

After Rowan, he transfered to Georgia College & State University where he was named a NCAA/ABCA All-American and a two-time Southeast All-Region selection.

Following college, he played six years of professional baseball in the Frontier League. After pro ball, he decided to jump into the coaching ranks where he made stops at Concord-Carlisle High School (Concord, MA), Temple University (Philadelphia, PA) and is currently an assistant varsity coach at Noble and Greenough School (Dedham, MA).

For the past three years Coach Anderson has also worked as a lead instructor and coach at the Winning Pitchers Academy in Framingham, MA. He will be available as a full-time instructor and will be stepping in to assist Coaches Gerry Carroll and Eric Schwartz on our 15U Chiefs Prospects team.
