versity of Southern Califor-
nia for a couple of years
until I had the opportunity
to get into organized baseball
on a full-time basis," Matlin
said. "And I've been fooling
them ever since."
Mike Catron, coach of that
American Legion team, and
Hollis Thurston, a major
league scout, helped Matlin
latch on to the Cleveland In-
dians. as a scout during his
tenure with the Bakersfield
club. In 1953 the Indians
sent him to Quebec for a
position with a Class C team
at Sherbrooke, then the next
year he went to Jacksonville
Beach of the Florida State
League.
"I tired of it, decided a
change was in order, and I
made a connection to go to
Colorado Springs to a legiti-
mate Class A Western
League (team) and was there
for three years. Then I went
back to Fresno of the
California League."
His next stop was with
Tacoma of the Triple-A
Pacific Coast League where
he was business manager for
the San Francisco Giants af-
filiate for three years. Then
he was named general man-
ager of the Hawaii Islanders,
also of the PCL 1963. The
Sporting News selected Mat-
lin minor league executive of
the year after the 1963 sea-
son in which the Islanders
led the league in attendance.
Four years at Vancouver
followed. Matlin reached the
major leagues in 1969 as di-
rector of stadium operations
for the expansion Seattle
Pilots of the American
League. He later became sec-
retary of the club's farm sys-
tem and assistant to the
general manager. The team
moved to Milwaukee and be-
came the Brewers in April
1970. The next season he
joined the Tigers.
"This is the longest I've
stayed put," he said. "Some-
times our moves were by
choice. Some of them were
not. I was very sorry to leave
Vancouver. I could have
stayed there in another
business. I thought we were
going out of business. I had a
chance to go to the big
leagues and everyone's hokie
enough to want to go to the
big leagues.
"I was satisfied to be a
minor league operator. I-
liked being the boss (but) I
don't think I want to again."
Matlin's been married for
nearly 28 years to "a delight-
ful, long-suffering wife,"
