Frank Mattox dies

Frank Mattox, who is somewhat of a legend in the Acalanes High School baseball program, died Sunday night at his home in Peoria, Ariz. Mattox was 49 years old.

During his time at Acalanes High School, Mattox was one of the most dominant baseball players the area has ever seen. He later went on to be a star at Cal and eventually played seven seasons professionally with the Milwaukee Brewers.

After his playing career came to an end, Mattox served as a scout and scouting director for the Seattle Mariners and Colorado Rockies organizations.
