February 4, 2004: Matt Wagner, who went 9-5 with the Bears in 2003 and was the July Fan Club Player of the Month before being traded to the Atlantic City Surf in August, has begun a new career in the financial services sector. Matt, whose college degree is in finance, tells us that he is working with a group of congenial people at a bank in his home state of Iowa.

Matt played with the Seattle Mariners in 1996, starting 14 games. He was traded to Montreal and spent two seasons in their minor leagues before an injury and surgery forced his temporary retirement. Following rehabilitation, Matt played the 2002 season for the Pennsylvania Road Warriors before joining the Bears last summer.

Newark Bears Fan thanks Matt for his efforts on the field and we wish him the best of luck in his new career!
