It seems like Matt is at peace with his decision, and is doing ok financially because of the law suit and insurance policy, but at one point in his career his signature was worth $4.9M. Scary thing is that is more money than he will probably make over the course of his working life.
I think the money is secondary to never having had a chance at a baseball career. Matt seems a lot more at peace about it than his dad, who cannot seem to let it go. I'll bet the ol' man plays "what if" everday and it is water under the bridge and you don't get a mulligan.
