Matt Kemp’s mom

My name is Judy Henderson. My son, Matthew Kemp, plays for the Double-A Jacksonville Suns. This is his third year playing minor league ball. We live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Matthew was drafted out of high school. I am a RN Case Manager for a long-term acute care hospital in the OKC area. I have been a nurse for over 20 years.

JaxIt has really been a great experience for me to see my son excel in baseball. He played basketball in high school and baseball was his second sport. He originally wanted to attend college on a basketball scholarship. In his senior year, he was noticed more for baseball than basketball. Then the scouts came and that was that! He decided that baseball was it.

You can read my son’s journal on every two weeks. Click here to read his most recent entry.

I am looking forward to corresponding with as many people as possible, so send in your comments.
