Mets pitcher Steven Matz hooks gigantic shark on fishing trip (pic)

New York Mets pitcher Steven Matz now has a whopper of a fishing tale to tell his teammates during spring training.

With Mets camp kicking into high gear, the left-hander nevertheless managed to spend some free time fishing off the Florida coast. And to say Matz hooked a monster fish during the outing would be an understatement, as he posted evidence to Twitter that he landed a sizeable shark on the trip.


The sight that Matz is sticking his arms in the water to showcase a menacing, toothy shark probably shouldn’t sit well with Mets brass. But the pitcher evidently came out of the experience unscathed so all’s well that ends well.

Plus, Matz landed himself a fishing tale he can tell the rest of his life.
