"Obviously I think he"s a guy who can hit," said Ogden manager Travis Barbary.
"But learning a new position has got to be tough for anybody, especially when it"s catching and this is his
first year catching."
Martin started the season rather slowly, both defensively and offensively.He
made a number of mistakes behind the plate and, in turn, his
offensive production slipped, too.
But lately, Martin has really begun to step forward.Over the past month, he
has raised his
batting average by more than 20 points and has also shown steady improvement behind the plate as well.
..."He"s just been awesome the past month-and-a-half," said Barbary, a former catcher in the Dodgers" system.
