Matt Kemp BioCurrently with the San Diego Padres, Matt Kemp was a standout in basketball and baseball at Midwest City High School in Midwest City Oklahoma. Kemp (born September 23, 1984) was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 6th round of the 2003 draft. He signed with the team on June 5, 2003.
He started his pro career with the Gulf Coast Dodgers in 2003. After playing for the Columbus Catfish in 2004, he moved on to the Vero Beach Dodgers in 2004–05. He hit his stride, there, and was selected to the Florida State League All-Star team in 2005 after setting Vero Beach franchise records for home runs (27) and slugging percentage (.569).
Matt made his major league debut in 2006. In 2011, he earned recognition as one of the elite player in the National League. He led the league in runs scored (115), total bases (353), OPS+ (171), WAR (10.0), home runs (39), and runs batted in (115). In the process, he became the first player since Hank Aaron in 1963 to finish in the top two in both home runs and steals.
His 2013 season has been a tale of one injury after another. Currently on the DL nursing a shoulder injury, hopes are he gets back in time for the post season. ¹
