Matthew "Matt" Wade Stairs (born February 27, 1968 in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada) is a Canadian Major League Baseball outfielder, first baseman, and pinch hitter in the Washington Nationals organization. In AL parks, he plays the designated hitter or pinch hitter role. He has been signed to 13 different major league baseball teams, giving him the record for being on the most teams of any baseball position (non-pitching) player.[1]

He is only the second Canadian-born player to ever hit more than thirty-five home runs in a season and only the second to hit more than 25 home runs and drive in more than 100 runs in back-to-back seasons. He ranks either first or second in power hitting categories of any Canadian to ever play in the Major Leagues. As of 22 August 2010 (2010 -08-22), Stairs had hit 21 pinch-hit home runs, which is the most all time, passing Cliff Johnson for the MLB record. He recently increased his record by hitting his 23rd Pinch-Hit homerun on September 14th against the Colorado Rockies. Stairs and Larry Walker are the only Canadian MLB players to hit more than 250 career home runs.[2]
