MLB Players from Oklahoma

Oklahoma has produced plenty of major league players. There are 24 who are still active in the pros. Among them are Matt Holliday, Tommy Hanson, Brad Penny, Matt Kemp, and budding young star Dylan Bundy.

Matt Holliday

Matt Holliday was born in 1980 in Stillwater. At Stillwater High School, he excelled in both football and baseball. His baseball honors included All-American and Gatorade Player of the Year ('S'§ionType=career&statType=1&season=2014&level='ALL'). He was on the Junior National team in 1997.

Holliday was selected in the 7th round of the 1998 draft when he was 18. He was considered a potential major leaguer and might have gone higher had he not been considering going to college and playing football. Still, he spent some time in the minors, even changing positions.

Holliday did not have his MLB debut until 2004 when he was 24. He's won plenty of accolades in the time since. He has been selected as an All-Star multiple times and has also won the Silver Slugger Award more than once.

He has played for the Colorado Rockies, Oakland Athletics, and St. Louis Cardinals.

He has been active in ‘Homers for Health’.

Dylan Bundy

Dylan Bundy was born November 1992 in Tulsa. He was involved in USSSA baseball, beginning with the ten-and-under Tulsa Hosers ( He continued to play in the league through fourteen-and-under.

Bundy then became a ball star at Owasso High. During his time in high school, he won plenty of awards. Scouts took note of him as early as his freshman year, when he played at the 2008 Area Code Games. As a senior, he was Player of the Year on the All-USA team (

Bundy went as a high 1st round draft pick in 2011. He played for the minor league Bowie Baysox. His MLB debut came in September of 2012. He was still only 19.

Bundy did require surgery early in his pro career ( In early 2014, he’s recovering his pitch and working toward getting back on the Orioles roster. He says it’s exciting to be back on the mound.

Matt Kemp

Matt Kemp was born in 1984 in Midwest City. He first played baseball at age four (

He later played both baseball and basketball at Midwest City High School.

Kemp was taken in the 6th round of the 2003 draft. His minor league teams included the Class A Columbia Catfish, Class-AA Jacksonville Suns, and Class AAA Las Vegas 51s. He debuted in the majors in 2006.

Supporting autism research is his way of giving back; his younger brother was diagnosed autistic.

Tomorrow’s Ball Players in Oklahoma

Future baseball players often start playing – and dreaming – at an early age. Bundy lists his father and older brother as baseball influences. He also played elite ball. This allows talented young players to team up with others who have similar abilities and, in some cases, similar aspirations.

Youth of virtually all ability levels can find sports teams that are appropriate for them. Less competitive leagues and teams do still exist. Ideally, the experience can provide life lessons as well as fun and trophies.

As for those future pros… They have a good deal more to learn than just catching and throwing. It’s also crucial to learn sportsmanship. Matt Kemp once said, “When I do something good, you're gonna see I'm happy. But when something is going wrong, I'm not going to get crazy and slam my helmet , or whatever it is that some people do. I've never really been like that. Your opponent wants to see you frustrated. And I don't want them to think I'm frustrated when I'm not (”
