Senior Baseball Phenom Tommy Martin Commits to University of Maine


Senior Tommy Martin recently committed to play baseball at the University of Maine.

“I committed to Maine because I felt that it was the best choice for me,” said Martin, who officially committed to the university last month, on Aug. 3. “They always competed, and I feel that they have a good plan for me to excel at the next level.”

Martin is a strong force on the field who produced a stellar performance last season for Rams baseball that he hopes to repeat this spring. Last season, with 47.1 innings pitched, he was able to have a 1.76 ERA and 51 strikeouts.

“Tommy was one of our biggest contributors to our success last season because of his ability to give the team five scoreless innings and then go 3-for-4 with two RBIs,” stated senior Rocco Albano, the team captain.

“Maine is lucky to get a player like Tom,” Albano said. Tommy is respected by his teammates for his work on and off the field. He put in the work every day and it obviously showed,” Albano noted.

“Being able to go to the field with him and work out with him, seeing his regimen, it’s really inspiring to see the preparation and dedication,” said senior Ethan Gorman, the Rams center fielder.

Tommy’s teammates noted that he has boosted the team’s morale as well as their stats. “Although Tom is a quiet guy to some people, he is one of the funniest guys I know, and it translates to the field,” Albano said. “He always has a smile on his face and is always the guy that will pick you up after a strikeout or error.”

“Tommy is a great player and an even better best friend,” Gorman agreed.

Martin and the rest of the Randolph baseball team now look to having a successful season in the coming spring.

“Tommy is going to be an even bigger part to our success this year, as he gets better and stronger,” Albano said.

“I’m looking forward to winning games, competing with my boys this year, and competing for the state and county championships,” Martin added.
