Coming to the CCL // Stanford’s Vincent Martinez

Updated: March 25, 2021

Vincent Martinez’s stock continues to rise in his third year on the Stanford roster. The junior catcher from San Marcos, Calif. has started eight of Stanford’s games behind the plate, and has proven to be one of the team’s most consistent hitters to open the season. His 13 hits in 33 at-bats put him atop the team in batting average (.394) and second on the team with an OPS of 1.141. This includes a huge four-hit day in a high-scoring win against the University of San Francisco on March 7, a game where Martinez hit his first career home run. He tacked on his second and third career homers a week later against UC Irvine.

Martinez has been a tremendous asset to Stanford, making key contributions to the team as they opened their 2021 campaign with a 10-2 record. Martinez and Stanford’s sights are set on a PAC-12 championship this year, and after the dust settles, he will be trading in the Cardinal jersey for the San Luis Obispo Blues’ uniform hoping to continue his high-level of play. Catch Martinez and the rest of the Blues all summer at picturesque Sinsheimer Field in San Luis Obispo. Follow along with the future Blues’ catcher here.
