Atlanta Braves, MLB Postseason

Braves: Tyler Matzek has amazing NSFW autograph

Tyler Matzek has been a star on the mound for the Atlanta Braves in the MLB Postseason but the reliever also has an incredible autograph in his arsenal too.

Particularly in the NLCS and in Game 1 of the World Series, Tyler Matzek has come in as a reliever for the Atlanta Braves and been absolutely dominant. His penchant for stepping onto the mound in big moments and delivering the goods.

That has apparently earned him a bit of an NSFW nickname from his Braves teammates. And it’s apparently a moniker that Matzek is proud of.

In fact, he’s so proud that the Atlanta pitcher puts the nickname at the bottom of his autographs, making for an unforgettable piece of memorabilia for anyone who gets Matzek to sign something.

Tyler Matzek’s NSFW autograph only makes him more of a Braves legend

Say what you will about having and embracing that nickname, it certainly applies considering that the reasoning is Matzek steps up in big moments and gets strikeouts.

That’s certainly been true for him in the playoffs.

Perhaps his crowning achievement was in Game 6 of the NLCS against the Dodgers. Matzek took over with no outs in the top of the seventh with runners on second and third after LA had just scored to make it 4-2. The journeyman reliever struck out the side and then pitched another scoreless inning in the eighth to propel the Braves to the win and to take the series.

Needless to say, who doesn’t want this autograph from Matzek at this point? If nothing else, it’s one of a kind.
