Jacob Martins returns for 2019 season
The Hamilton Cardinals are pleased to announce the signing of infielder Jacob Martins (Richmond Hill). Jacob just finished his sophomore year at Canisius were he hit .152 ( 7-46) with 1 homerun in 11 starts. An injury just before the season started derailed Jacob after a very successful freshman year.
Last season was Jacobs first in the IBL where he hit .284 (21-74) in 18 games with 4 doubles and 7 Rbi's playing 2b and 3b with the Cardinals.
"Jacob is a very strong player who can play all 4 infield positions and hits the ball gap to gap. He is a quiet player who plays with confidence and plays the game hard. We are happy to have him back healthy and eager to get going." stated GM Jeff Lounsbury
After finishing up the MAAC conference tournament last weekend Martins was excited to return to Hamilton "I am very excited to come back to the Hamilton Cardinals organization. I’m looking forward to building off of a great season from 2018."
The Hamilton Cardinals are members of Ontario's most elite baseball league. The Intercounty Baseball League. The 101 year old summer league is one of the oldest baseball leagues in the world, established in 1919.
