Terriers All Time Winningest Pitcher, Billy Martin Off To College In 2008
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Tuesday, September 11, 2007
Billy Martin will add to his Terriers all time wins record this fall and next year then take his pitching act to Canisius College (NCAA D1) in the fall of 2008. Billy's official visit to campus was last weekend and today he has accepted Head Coach Mike McRae’s scholarship offer. An original Terrier from the fall of 2005, Billy has won 21 games in his career and lost only twice. His ERA over that time is a miniscule 1.90.

He is a student of the game, revered by his team mates and a fierce competitor. Upon joining the Terriers as a 16 year old, Billy's fastball was clocked at 76 mph. Through his hard work and willingness to learn, he now consistently throws in the mid to high 80's. Along with excellent command of his fastball and the ability to throw his offspeed pitches in any count, Billy caught the eye of several college scouts and recruiters. His decision to join the Golden Griffins however, was an easy one in the end. Canisius offers Billy his first choice of college major, which is Physical Education. Further, the fact that he will be reunited with several Terrier alumni that helped carry the Golden Griffins to the MAAC Conference tournament last year weighed into his decision. Billy is a product of the Mississauga Twins organization. After his Terrier summer schedule ended in 2006,he rejoined the Twins. Billy pitched game one of the Ontario Midget elimination tournament and got the win. The right hander also started the final game that lead the Twins to a birth at the National Championship. He chocked up yet another victory in PEI and he and his team mates came away with the Canadian Midget title. Billy had also won the Sandlott Baseball World Series Championship with the Terriers earlier that July. What a summer! The Terriers coaches and management are thankful to Billy for his contributions and to his family for their unyielding support of the organization. Congratulations Billy on your past successes and your future college baseball career.
