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