Matt Szczur to appear on E:60 Tuesday September 3, 2013

Former Villanova football superstar Matt Szczur will be featured on the ESPN2 show E:60.

Matt Szczur left football behind for the Chicago Cubs minor league system after leaving Villanova following the 2010 football season. Hitting leadoff for the Tennessee Smokies this season, he has batted 281 with 27 doubles, 81 runs scored and 22 stolen bases in his effort to reach the major leagues.

As the preview shows, the ESPN piece will focus on his decision to donate his marrow to a young girl after the 2009 FCS Championship game.

This is Matt Szczur, a top prospect in the Chicago Cub's farm system. At 24, his journey to professional baseball is just like countless other minor leaguers, except for one dramatic difference. Along the way, something improbable happened, that connected Matt to a stranger on the other side of the planet.

The full version is scheduled to run by ESPN2 at 7:00pm on Tuesday, September 3, 2013.

UPDATE: The full version of the video is below.
