COACH RITSCHE ON MARTIN:  “Paco is another junior college transfer that will have an immediate impact on the Ram’s baseball program this spring.  Paco adjusted to the Division II level almost immediately as he had a tremendous fall for the Rams. Martin led the Rams Fall League in extra base hits and tied for the league in RBIs.  He also impressed the coaching staff defensively and has the ability to play anywhere in the infield.  He will most likely transition to our everyday 2B and be our #2 hitter due in the lineup to his bat control and being a consistent contact hitter.”
