We were just about ready to wrap up one of our days, when Mather came out and leaned on the dugout rail to scan the field. We were probably a bit beyond the regular time slot for any interviews, but we really wanted to get Mather, so we approached him.
Contributor Extraordinaire Matt Parker got Mather to give us a quick thought on video about his favorite city to visit. It was a short interview and obviously not too in depth. Still, we make no apologies. We got the thoughts on travel from major leaguer Joe Mather.
Mather was a valuable asset to the Cubs this season. He played outfield, third, first and even pitched (his second time on the mound during his career). I really like Mather and hope he sticks around next season. I also liked his answer to our question. It was brief, but I have to agree with it and his reasoning.
I hope you enjoy the video below. Also, check out Travel Favorites of Baseball Greats, the online piece I wrote for Global Traveler magazine.
