Corbin's Comments: "A competitive player with a resilient arm. Pitched more like a veteran this fall than a first-year pitcher. Could become a strong weapon out of the bullpen, but could also work his way into a starting role."

High School: Posted a 5-1 mark and 1.68 ERA with 58 strikeouts, 11 walks and three complete games in 42.0 innings pitched as a senior at Lafayette High School... Batted .412 at the plate with three home runs, nine doubles and 19 RBI as a senior... Named first team All-Conference as a pitcher and second team All-Conference as a hitter... Earned honorable mention All-State accolades... Recorded an 8-3 mark and 1.51 ERA with 77 strikeouts and 17 walks in 74 innings during the 2002 summer with the St. Louis Redbirds of the SLABA... Lettered in baseball and basketball... Coached in baseball by Gary Donahue... Captained the
basketball and baseball teams as a senior... Chose Vanderbilt over Missouri and Missouri State.

Personal: Matthew David Buschmann... Born 2/13/84 in St. Louis, Mo... Son of Clem and Mary Buschmann... Has two brothers (Jeff and Scott) and two sisters (Julie and Sarah)...

Favorites include beef stew, the television shows "The Simpsons" and "Seinfeld," the movie "Dumb and Dumber," the musical group U2, singer Nelly, comedian Eddie Murphy, Busch Stadium, Nolan Ryan and the Boston Red Sox...
