Braves prospect Matt Foley pays tribute to a certain motivational speaker with his bat decal

Matt Foley is a catching prospect in the Braves' system. He's 22 years old, and he's playing pro baseball for a living. That's pretty cool, something that would normally be the coolest thing in most people's lives.
But his name, guys. That name.

Yes, he shares a name with motivational speaker Matt Foley -- the star of one of the greatest SNL sketches of all-time. So, of course, he embraces his distinction with an amazing decal on the bottom of his bat. 

Let's just hope this Foley has great success in baseball and life, and doesn't wind up eating a steady diet of government cheese while living in a van down by the river.
