P2Daily: Kieran Mattison Discusses Life, Baseball, and the Grind

During the winter, the Pirates promoted several coaches in the minor leagues to bigger roles, different roles, and everything in between. One of those coaches that received a promotion is Kieran Mattison, who became Double-A Altoona’s manager. 

Mattison was High-A Greensboro’s manager during the 2021 season. Thankfully, we were able to grab an interview with Mattison on the latest episode of Pittsburgh Baseball Now’s very own podcast. Below are some show notes.

  • Mattison discussed the grind he faced as an undrafted minor leaguer
  • His love for his players and the relationships he’s created over the years
  • His mentality as a coach and how he wants to be known as a manager who “serves” his players
  • Discussion on some of the top prospects he coached in 2022

Anthony Murphy will have an article working off of this podcast on Pirates Prospects on Monday morning.
