I remember collecting baseball cards with the Alou brothers, Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Orlando Cepeda, and other San Francisco Giant greats during the early 1960s. It was an incredible era for baseball and the Alous were at the forefront. In losing Matty, we've lost one of the best.

Thanks for the memories, Matty....to be part of an all-family outfield and not have it duplicated is special indeed. You are a classy guy, and have been the subject of many fun chats between my dad and me as he indoctrinated me into the wonderful world of baseball. Takes us back to a special time....rest in peace, dear Matty.

To the Alou Family: Baseball has lost one of its finest players. You have my deepest heartfelt sympathies. The only ball I ever caught at Forbes Field, Matty was practicing his bunting (PEPPER) in the bullpen before an Atlanta Braves game. He fouled one off and I caught it. That made my whole year. Another time Matty and his brother Felipe were leaving Forbes Field, both of them had watermelons on their shoulders, laughing and having a good time. They got into an old Rambler with no muffler. Boy that car was LOUD. They waved at us and were on their merry way. One time I asked Matty, " Hey what side of the bat do you hit the ball with?" He loved to choke up on the bat. I sure loved watching him play. I will keep him and the rest of the Alou family in my thoughts and prayers GOD BLESS YOU MATEO. Rest in Peace
