Matt Dunstone is a two-sport athlete

Matt Dunstone can bring the heat in two sports

Here is a few more things about Manitoba skip Matt Dunstone.

Dunstone is the skip of Team Manitoba, which won the 2013 Canadian junior men's curling championship on Saturday.
Apparently Dunstone is a two-sport athlete. Not only does he have a bright future in curling, especially with his aggressive style and apparent joy of the game, but he's a good baseball player too.

He was named named Baseball Manitoba’s Midget Player of the Year in November and has had some interest from colleges south of the border to play down there.

William Dion, who skipped Quebec to a junior title a few years ago, played Canadian college football and recently signed with the Montreal Aloutettes.

Another curler who was a good baseball player in his day was Nolan Thiessen. Thiessen, who is the lead for Kevin Koe, played ball for an American college before concentrating on curling.
