so this article is kind of old, but I hadn't seen it before and it talks more in depth about Matt's upcoming spread in GQ next month

For one afternoon Tuesday, the main stadium at Camelback Ranch was transformed from ballpark to fashion studio. The bullpen bench turned into a dressing room. On the warning track sat a clothes rack. A fog machine blew smoke into the crisp Phoenix breeze while photographers were at the ready.

Matt Kemp emerged from left field wearing a tight-fitting polo shirt, white jeans and aviator glasses. Upon instruction, he clung to the fence, a baseball mitt in one hand, a demure look on his face.

By May, the photos will be seen by more than 800,000 readers on the pages of GQ magazine, where Kemp will be featured over six pages, modeling polo shirts of varied color, length and fit.

I promise to get scans as soon as I get the magazine and also I'm planning to do a picture of the day so it won't be so slow

the small interview portion with Matt from MLBNetwork's 30 in 30

19 March 2010 @ 01:47 pm

The "30/30" series, which started March 3, finishes April 1. The show on the Angels debuted Thursday but will reair it several times this weekend, including 1 p.m. today and at 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. Saturday. The Dodgers' preview first airs today at 2 and 7 p.m. and repeats seven times, including 1 p.m. Saturday.

Trenni Kusnierek, who with producer Nick Steger, cameraman Reggie Gibson and sound man Frank Baglino set up interviews all Thursday morning with the Dodgers' Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw and Tommy Lasorda during her stop Wednesday and Thursday in Glendale, said she knows the players are watching this as well especially this year.

It's become a place they can even promote themselves better than if it was during the regular season.

"Matt Kemp says he expects to get a lot grief from his teammates when they see the next issue of GQ, because they used him as a model for a Polo clothing spread and shot it all right here," Kusnierek said. "I didn't even have to ask him about Rihanna."

damn, I had been hoping it would have been a bigger piece on him along with an interview but I won't complain for what we're getting.

Reporting from Scottsdale, Ariz. - Unlike a certain someone who refused to admit a couple of years ago that hitting in front of Manny Ramirez made a difference, Matt Kemp had no problem saying that he would likely benefit from his new place in the lineup.

"You got 'Dre behind me, so they're probably going to pitch to me because they don't want to see him," Kemp said.

Standing in front of an adjacent locker stall, Andre Ethier leaned over to cut in.

"Yeah, now that I got a hit they don't want to see me," said Ethier, who collected his first hit of the spring Monday.

They laughed.

Desert Drive: Matt Kemp models Dodgers new batting helmets

What's up, SoCal Stewies!

Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp(notes) might try getting comfy in the second spot in the lineup, manager Joe Torre says. Fine. But what's going underreported at Dodgers camp? Their newfangled batting helmets that look kind of like — there's no getting around this — a 'roided-up Manny Ramirez(notes).

Actually, it's just a novelty hat. Kemp (and no other Dodgers, either) will be wearing this during league play. It was created by a fan, who loaned the prototype to Kemp so he could strut around filled with mirth for a few minutes.

"Oh, I LIKE this," Kemp said. "I'm keeping it." He gave it back.

and some pics tweeted by @teasemarketing on Twitter from Matt's Ante Up for Autism event, click for original size

Reporting from Phoenix - Matt Kemp said he didn't mind the four hours of standing in the sun.

He didn't mind being asked to repeat the same action over and over and over, whether it was jumping against a wall, tossing a bat or taking a light swing.

He didn't mind the countless walks in and out of the makeshift dressing room in the bullpen in the main stadium at Camelback Ranch.

His first venture into modeling, which was for a spread in the May edition of GQ magazine, left the Dodgers' center fielder open to accepting similar opportunities in the future.

"Why not?" he asked. "I had fun. They had the music going. It was a cool little crew. The cameraman was supposedly one of the best in the world."

can't wait for May! and hopefully he was in many suits
