Alumni Update - Billy Martin
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, January 12, 2014
Over the next few months and with the start of the college baseball season just around the corner we will be featuring several Terrier alumni, reviewing their time with the program, their college careers and what they are up to these days. BILLY MARTIN Billy was spotted as a bantam playing for the Mississauga Twins. He was a gritty center fielder with a strong, fast arm. After he was recruited by the Terriers Martin was converted to a pitcher.

He started out on the mound as a wirey 16 year old with a 76 mph fast ball. Billy worked very hard at all aspects of his game during his three years with the program and was a key member of seven championship teams, including the 2006 WS Championship in Nashville. In all he would record 21 wins in his Terriers career. In his senior year his fast ball had reached 87 mph with pin point control. He had also perfected an outstanding change up that induced countless double plays. Billy had become a leader on the pitching staff, and was a tremendous team mate. These attributes helped him earn a scholarship to Canisius College. Billy Martin had four great years at Canisius and was a member of the 2013 MAAC Conference Champion Golden Griffins. He graduated with a degree in physical and health education this past May. For the past 3 summers Martin has played in the WMBL for the Medicine Hat Mavericks. Last season he helped the team to 45 wins, a league record. Billy was honored with The Pitcher of the Year Award after posting a perfect 5-0 record. That went along with a sparkling 1.14 ERA. Currently Billy is the pitching coach for the Badlands Badgers Baseball Academy in Oyen Alberta.
