Matthew Ryan "Matt" Kemp (born September 23, 1984 in Midwest City, Oklahoma) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Kemp attended Midwest City High School and was a standout in basketball and baseball. He was teammates with Shelden Williams of the New York Knicks on the varsity basketball team that won the state title their junior year.
In 2002, while playing in a High School All-Star Basketball tournament, Matt Kemp, along with four teammates, including Williams, were accused of raping a 19 year-old woman on January 20, 2002 at the Columbus, Ohio Hyatt hotel. The players were suspended from the team during the investigation. The woman did not press charges, and the district attorney opted to not pursue the matter due to a lack of evidence.
